Default Rookie mistake with my HPI E10

Hey guys. I'm fairly new to RC drifting. I recently bought an HPI E10. I decided to do the 15T motor upgrade along with the aluminum motor mount and driveshaft. As I was placing my motor mount back on, I misplaced one of the screws. I accidentally put the longer, finer thread screw in the shorter mounting hole, went too far, and stripped out some of the threads in the body. Does anyone have any tricks to fix this? I was gonna try heating up the screw and tightening it. Either that or I was gonna pour some super glue in the hole in the body, tighten the screw, and let it sit for a few hours.

I think you should pour some super glue in the hole in the body and tighten the screw . I don't think it's a good idea to heating up the screw and tightening it. this might damage the body.
