    I asked Evolve. The factory uses loctite sometimes. As advised, I used a soldering iron to heat the screw, then it came out normally.

    Wish I did that.

    Had to drill two of them out and get two new motor mounts.

    All done and working now.

    I had to use a Dremel to cut a slot for a screwdriver, because I’d already stripped the Allen socket : )

    Evolve didn’t suggest I needed to use Loctite when putting the screws back in, and I’ve not had any noticeable belt loosening in a couple months riding without loctite.

    Had the same problem - stripped Allen and then dremel'd a slot - still couldn't budge it though. Didn't consider using an iron. Ended up shearing it off at the motor - so now the motor is held by only 3 of them. Been OK so far.

    Few people have asked with no response. I ordered new ones from evolve web site. Got 2 packs of gt bamboo screws for my gtx.
    used them on my meepo mini too
