And decent bits.

To be fair high tensile bolts can be a right cunt.

The minute you go too quick you have burned out the bit.

Good luck.

Worst idea ever lol it will take days to get to that back bolt if it was front bolts easy peasey.. I'm officially calling it a day and will now be taking the 90k heart out and transplanting a 30k heart in its place.
And put all the upgrades on that.
That is unless I get a good offer for someone who is willing to break it

Also slightly tighten the next bolt if you can. Will take a small amount of pressure off the stuck one
