Mine broke-off too and I've been unable to get the remnant out of the car. Not a great design even as a forged part IMO, if you're actually gonna use it (i.e., track car).

Left handed drill bit works well.

Thanks, I will try that! I have tried an easy-out type of thing to no avail. Obviously the forged steel is extremely hard, and it's been screwed in there really tight for several years now. Possibly in there for good at this point.

Is it flush with the end? You could weld a nut on the broken fastener then remove easily.

Soak it with penetrating oil and let sit for an hour or so to let it weep into the areas it can. Use a smaller bit to make a pilot hole and go to town with the largest bit you feel comfortable with (as not to damage the threads).
