Mahle C-clips versus Ross Spiral

Hello there:

Has anyone used the Ross Racing Spiral Lock rings on a build?

Not familiar with Ross ones but other spirolock style clips are NOT compatible
with Mahle grooves. Spirolocks need a square cut groove versus circular.

Here's JE's tech advice on the use of their spiro locks, if that's any help

I bought these and when I got them, I thought….hmmm? Gut feeling is telling me these are suspect.

Thanks

Kevin:

Awesome find. I did not even think of looking for answers from JE Pistons website. Thanks so much for this. I can always count on your responses being very detailed.

Much appreciated. I did not have a good feeling about what I purchased, so I used the good old fashion Mahle Circlips like the factory guys intended. Too much money invested in my build to have a problem crop-up.

Thanks

Never had any issues whatsoever with Mahle type C clips locks.
