Just a follow up, went to Sears and got this stripped bolt remover bit for a power drill, it's a reverse thread design and digs in nicely. A few turns of self tapping secondary part of the bit and a little reverse english and *ZOOP* right out it came, after liberal spraying of WD-40 of course.

What direction do we go to loosen the hex nut holding the rotors on? already stripped one, not gonna strip another, counter clock-wise or clock-wise?. Also, what's a good tool/drill bit to get that stripped hex out, it's gonna be a pain in the arse.
