    Factory settings are a starting point - they're not right for all conditions.

    Or even better, get a flywheel spanner (probably flywheel wrench in the US)
    It locates against the clutch pins to hold it in place while you tighten the nut.

    If I were you I'd switch the servo from one Revo to the other, so at least you still have one that works.
    Then see about getting the replacements sorted on the other one :)

    It depends whether he's removed the blue wire completely, or just shortened it so it can't foul the spur gear. If he's still using it, then it needs the ground wire too.

    I wouldn't recommend it. Nitro fuel absorbs moisture. If you put it in a fridge, water will condense out of the air in the top of the fuel can/bottle and get into the fuel.
