Angry Hurst shifter Installation!!

ok so i have everything taken apart EXCEPT the last Torx 30 screw that is on the top of the shifter base. For some reason it is being a flipping PITA and it is now stripped to HELL! I am hoping someone on here could point me in the right direction for removing this stupid ass screw...

thanks guys!!

File/grind a notch you can get a flathead screwdrive in and it SHOULD come out.

cool, thanks. So if I can't get it out could I just break the freaking screw head right off? I'm very hesitant on doing that considering it is on the transmission and I don't want to damage anything.. It is for sure my last resort!
