I recently bought a copy of buggy run but the cartridge is really damaged but the label is fine so was thinking of swapping it with a common cartridge but noticed the clips on the back require a special tool to open. Without having this is there any other way with destroying the whole thing?

I would recommend doing a re-print of the label (or finding someone who can do it for you). Just make sure you mention it in the item description if you ever plan to sell the game on lest you incur the wrath of die-hard collectors.
You can buy a gamebit on eBay for a couple of pounds. If it's just the back section of the cart that's damaged then swapping is easy (and sensible), but if you are trying to remove the label and swap it too then I suspect you will wreck it.
I have the same issue with one of my carts, it looks as if at some point in the past, some (insert expletive) has sawn the front two corners off, I presume so it would physically fit into a mega drive? I have the screwdriver attachments for the carts, they are cheap on eBay, there are two different sizes, i recommend just getting them as a pair as they come in handy for other games etc (For example checking/swaping batteries in SNES and Gameboys carts, or any other for that matter) Anyway, I have suitable donor cart now and am intending to use it as a practice for my label removal before i risk ruining the better game. My thoughts are to heat up the label and carefully remove then see if i can re-attach it to the same cart. If this goes well I'll then move onto the game I'm trying to re-house.
