    Stripped bolt on slipper clutch

    So the bolt that holds on the end of the slipper clutch that connects to the driveshaft is stripped and I need to change my spur gear. I have tried everything to get it off and I can't. Do I have to buy a whole new slipper clutch?

    It is 1.5mm. All of the hobby brand tools carry them. Check the tip on your wrench it is probably rounded out. If you have a rotory tool cut that worn out tip off. That may help you out. But a good set of tools will keep those little screws from stripping out in the future. I love my MIP drivers!

    I took it apart backwards by putting the nut all the way against the driveshaft piece, then I pulled the little rod out. But It is still stripped on the other side.

    Just got back from the hobby store with an aluminum bearing adapter, spur gear, and the Duratrax tool kit.

    If your going to replace the spur cut the plastic around the screw head off and use some small channel locks.

    Which screw head? I replaced the spur by taking it apart from the back.
