Idk if your still trying to get those pesky bolts out, but you could try Kroil. We use it in the Aircraft industry for that kind of stuff with good results. Maybe worth a shot.
Thanks, Scott! Dean (chino63) has offered to help me out so I'm likely going to send him the one stubborn wheel to see if he can work his magic. The screw heads are now too stripped out to try to remove conventionally. :(

Good point, Cory! Yeah, these are plastic wheels (obviously), but have no weight in them whatsoever. It's a perfect storm for a top heavy rig for sure!

And if anyone is bored, sgtsteve put together a brief compilation slo-mo video of the LJ from yesterday.

I'm not sure who owns this rig these days, but if you have any interest, I'd like to buy it back.

I know, right? Unfortunately at the time I sold, the crawler scene here in Austin was all but dead and I also needed the cash for other stuff. Nonetheless, the seller's remorse is strong with this one.
