While you are at it, look into putting on a k factory or kawahara centax clutch. it will help a lot getting all that new power to the ground. if you are racing just get the ns3 since 5 port motors are not legal anyways.btw, rd logics pipes rock.

Dremel and a cutoff wheel........slot it so you can use a flat blade screw driver.......careful not to cut the chassis

Any Dremel type tool will work. Sears and Black & Decker also make similar style tools. Anyways. Just make sure that after you slot it that you use a screwdriver tip that fits snug into the slot you made or else the problem will just get worse and you won't have anyting to slot anymore. If you use too small a screwdriver tip to remove you might end up widening the slot and you wont have enough grip to take out the already stuck screw. Also you want to make sure that when you turn your screw driver that you push in with enough pressure so that it doesn't slip out and destroy the slot you made. Just a thought because I know what your feeling. I've had to remove a couple of them darn things myself.

You can also drill out the head enough so it breaks off. If the chassis isn't threaded you can remove the other screws and then use plyers to get the rest of the screw out.

Default Home Depot

Go to Home Depot and get a screw extractor. Get the smallest one that they have. It comes with a drill bit and the extractor. All you do is drill into the screw head. Tap the screw extractor into the head and remove screw. The extractor is reverse thread so when you turn to the left it's actually biting into the screw.

All you need is a drill. Just drill into the screw head and insert the screw extractor. Then use a pliers to turn the extractor counter clockwise. This will tighten the extractor into the screw because it's reverse thread.

I don't know what hardware store you have in Malaysia but I'm sure you should be able to find it.

go to www.homedepot.com and search for screw extractor

Yes or any brand extractor will do. Just get one for the size of the screw you're trying to get out.

If its only one of the screws, you can remove the other 3, then rotate the engine while you use a screwdriver to hold the stripped screw. You won't need much force to hold the screw since you are turning the other end. I have done this many times. Works great.
