I use a small flat head screw driver and hold my finger over the top and pop it off. Those e-clips are usually hardened and you shouldn't mess them up.

Has anyone ever tried those "low friction" belts available? Are they really worth it?

I think spec-r makes some; I could be wrong on that.

I use them exclusively on my stock class racers. they last just as long and spin freer. I posted the part numbers on an earlier post. It might take some digging. it was a BD5/7 mid belt and a TCX rear belt. They are actually either the same price or cheaper than stock.

Tamiya DCJs fit and are very durable. You still need a smaller inside bearing.

Never had an AE one fall apart. Not sure why they would, the design is the same as the majority out there. I have broken one after hitting a solid indoor corner marker, but I'm not concerned about that at all.

I've never had an issue with the AE DCJs.

If your DCJs are falling apart it's probably because of the retainer ring orientation. The ring orientation should be dependent on the rotation of the DCJ. If you're still having problems try putting shrink wrap around the center barrel (over the rings).

If you're still interested in the tamiya DCJs here is a link:
