It should be the first size smaller than 2mm.

$9.00 is a lot better than buying a Elevator set plus shipping.

You would probably find the LOSI ones from the toy car shop are the same size. The ref is Losi 1043, E clips for 2mm suspension pins.

There's one in my basement somewhere.

those may be the ones i need. i guess what i'm not sure of is do you order a 2mm clip for a 2 mm shaft, or do you order a clip smaller than the shaft. if size is to match the shaft then i may have ordered to small. if so i'll order the ones from towers. i should have many thousand frequent order miles with them by now. thanx for the link. at least they're cheap parts i'm messing with here.

well, out of all the clips i have the 1.5mm matched up the best. looks to fit like the stock one does. i'll keep an eye on it for awhile but so far looks like a winner.

no problem. i was surprised a million guys didn't chime in. i guess the clips don't come off very often. i now have 10 replacements. that ought to last me about 200 years.
