Default "c" clip in the clutch.

ok i got my new rims and tires today. i got 4 moabs, ( iwanted something better but got them off a buddy for $20). and i got 4 hpi gun metal grey 5 spoke wide rims. i took the volcano out for a rip. figured the weather was nice so i ran it a little while. it was goin great until i broke the c clip inside the clutch bell. is that common to break? do i need to get a special clip or do most hardware stores have them? oh yea i got those hpi rims from a guy that cleared out the rest of the rc stuff he had for 10 bucks. i'll get some pics up tomorrow.
