Hi guys, I bought some screws at home Depot recently to switch out for the rocker posts and I don't know how to get them out. They aren't broken, I just didn't want them to break in the future and I heard that those screws would increase durability. I looked through the forums and it says how to take it out but it still doesn't make much sense to me. If you could give me some instruction on how to take them out that would be great. thanks

I re installed the screws tight, with a wrench holding the nut section of the shaft. Then removed with a power driver as a whole unit.

So the nut isn't part of the shaft? I tried that and it felt stuck on there.

Use the included wrench and hold the nut part of post and take a hex driver and unsrew the button head.
I used to think it was one piece and i guess it isn't.

the problem is that arrma uses locktite on the rocker screws and they don't need to. and they also use way to much.

Yah when I was taking out the center diff the screws were all covered with thread lock. It was sooo hard to take some of them out.

I had the same problem with my center diff and steering. I guess they like locktite.
