    OK I figured while I had my buggy apart and awaiting parts, That I would tear the diff apart (1st time) and add some diff fluid. Question is this, Ya know the 4 screws that hold the big gear on the diff case...Well on the last one the lock is spinning in the case. Is there any way I can get the screw out and salvage this thing or am I gonna find myself dremeling the head off that screw and buying a new diff case? I tried shoving a flat head screwdriver against it and turning the screw out but that didnt work. Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Stole this from www.hpibajaforum.com

    You could try to put some ca glue down in the hole where the nut is to hold it in place. You have to be sure not to get any on the threads though but you already know better than thatl

    This worked!

    Thanks guys, I figured no matter what the case would be screwed so I hammered a screwdriver down by the nut and managed to get it unscrewed. I was even able to salvage the case and put it back together.
    I will still get a new case though...Just in case.
