    i recently got a new motor for my rustler. the problem is i cant get the pinion gear of the stock motor.
    i already striped out the allen wrench that came with my truck. then i stripped another, actually saw a spark fly from that one.

    what can i do to help get the set screw loose?

    Drill it out, go a size smaller than the screw and drill it out.

    You still might be able to use it if you do it right, and if not the pinion gear is only about 3or 4 bux. Your still gonna have to dish out money for a set screw for the gear if it is any good after you get it out. I'd save the headache for something else and just drill it out.
