    Screw Driver Tech Tip

    The 1/18 Rally and I am sure the Tenton have a lot of small Philips head screws in them. Do not ever put a Philips screw driver to them as they strip super easy. Find yourself a flat head that fits well into the screw and use that and you will enjoy a long life with these screws. Also this tip bail you out if you already have a stripped screw. That is how I got one out and conceived of this tip.

    Thanks! I was thinking of disassembling mine to dye it, but looks like I won't do it...

    Personally I would say use the right size and type of Philips bit and you will be better off than with a flat blade!

    It just seems the screws are a bit soft and the flat head grabs more of the surface than even the right size Philips. The screwa are just soft. All just my opinion though :-)

    The screws on the 1/18's is the only thing I hate about them... They're just so tiny!
