check your belts and diffs, take the motor off and push the car.... if it noises, disconnect front belt, if it still noises, take out front dogbones....this way you can isolate the origin. It happened to me once, but was motor bearings... (i have a brushless).

It seems like impossible but i'm sure there must be an easy way.. anyone can help please...

Try a tooth pic, insert it through one of the little holes slowly and the natural taper of the tooth pic will squeeze it off. If you have a metal tapered pic that will work better, just don't poke your fingers.

Hey Guys Can anyone explain why I am converting gearing ratios that I'm getting readings like 0.87 for a 70/27 for Canadian TCS legal specs is 5.7 for GT2 I have used the chart and inputed the information for a TA05 thats what I get.

What am I doing wrong there

70 / 27 = 2.59259

2.59259 x 2.25 = 5.83333

(Spur gear divded by Pinion) multiplied by internal ratio = Final Drive Ratio

I can do it with ease just using small needlenose pliers. Just push on the ends of the c-clip with the ends of the needlenose pliers. It'll just slide/pop off. Just be sure to aim it down and onto a pit towel or something so you don't loose it.

Has anyone else noticed these?

I found out from Tamiya that they are Ti. Plus they would be TCS legal.

OKie thanks, i tried a toothpic but the gap between the clip and the pulley simply isn't big enough for me to do anything then i tried the plier and after a while i finally got it to came off. Anyway thanks for all your suggestions!

I have been leaving them off.... mainly for the very reason that you are running into. Seems to work fine.
