The "clip" that keeps the pin secure in the CV joint? What is the Yeah Racing part number of the item in question?

And I have contacted yeah racing but they just said to buy new one and to use adhesive threadlock. Trying to get an answer what they mean by that, cant see what that should do diffrently.

Weird answer indeed. I'd get it, if these were using grub screws, but with clips?

Just to make sure, we're talking about the clip that secures the little pin that actually holds the two halves together, right?

I would just find some heavy gauge steel clips at auto parts store to fit in the groove.

Use some muscle, and pliers to bend into shape. There is one video that I've seen a person used an old shock spring coil, but I don't know if that would be enough to hold CV pin securely.

Make sure you install them the right way round. In Tamiya manuals this is usually pointed out specifically, as when the clip is just minimally raised, it can hit the wheel hub. If installed correctly, the hit will press it down again, if incorrectly, it can make it come loose completely.

The yeahracing came ready just go in the car. No assembly needed and no instruction. Guess that you get what you paid for but still 🤣 but a valid point, atleast give a look

Rubber O-rings?

Finding a spring that size so you can cut off one coil?

Or bend something from piano wire?
