SlotForum banner rear wheel grub screws too tight

I've just bought a new Audi R8C (CA12C) which has had its rear wheel grub screws over-tightened in the factory. I've ruined three new allen keys trying to loosen the screws, only have two undamaged allen keys left and don't want to ruin those. I need to loosen the grub screws to reposition the rear wheels, which have been fixed too far inboard at manufacture.

I've tried alternately gently heating and cooling the axle and wheel assembly, which succeeded in loosening one screw, but the other is still jammed tight. Any ideas how to undo it?

If you bought it from a trader - I would send it back along with your ruined allen wrenches and ask for replacements.

I would also message Slot.It on this forum to make them aware - it's probably going to be an issue for a lot of people and if I am sure Maurizio will be keen to investigate and stop any ongoing problems.
