Default Speed Pinion Problem...

I have a small problem with the speed pinion i am trying to install in my e revo 1/16 vxl...
I have the stock pinion exposed, and i put in the right sized allen key (wrench) but every time i try to turn it, it just slips... its like the the set screw on the side of the pinion gear is too tight.

THanks

Yeah, i figured that, but when i used a different allen key it worked fine.. i guess it was just the cheap  allen key i was given.

yes the traxxas wrenches suck. I'd invest in a pair of quality drives, i have been using these for 2 years now with NO problems, never stripped anything with them: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-15-20-25-30mm
