I was doing some browsing and i came across this video and these clips for the evo rocker arms for our motors!!
the clips almost look like clips you would find on a plastic shield on a car that a screw goes into
like this clip and its been drilled out!
I think I'm gonna try this and see if i can make my own for a fraction of the price! ill be back soon with an update!
this is amazing if anybody wants to discuses this!

clip look a like that I will experiment with--->> https://www.lowes.com/pd/Hillman-2-Count-10-Black-Phosphate-Standard-SAE-U-Spring-Nuts/3013206

I don't have any experience, so can't say anything for sure and yes the idea looks great. But I would be worried about collateral damages on head components especially with cams in case if rocker arms try to fall down or get broken with those clips. In some case it may be better if you would just drop rocker arms. There are reasons to fall, so.

Yes, nice idea but IMHO I would be worried about the wear on the clip arms where they contact the lash adjuster (which holds the clip on). Enough wear may let the clips slide off (and then engine damage from the clips getting tangled up with the cam shaft - since the clips are so light weight they are even more likely to get tangled than a heavier fallen off rocker arm). Remember the rockers are moving 10-100 times a second.

this could be more for race application, where maybe after 10x runs you replace them

i think this would be a great idea for more serious racers out there, high revving, where a rocker problem occur. these clips are like doing a clutch in the car, you inspect and change as needed, but it sure would prevent a lot of damage, and if a clip brakes and falls off, due to the size of the clip compared to the rocker, i think the clip would just get destroyed but not the motor

Yeah, we went through this not long ago. It's a terrible idea. The rockers do no come off if the valve train remains in control. If your rockers are comming off, fix the problem, not the symptom, or else you will be buying a motor.
