can't explain the o/s that's just weird, the n/s could well be just the clip, and is fairly common, pull it out and see if the clip is there? Sometimes they need a very good positive shove to click in, but ideally a new clip, before now I've had to have a box shop strip one and de-burr the clip groove and generally tit about with it to get the thing to stay, arse of a car that one, and nobody's fault.

I'm surprised ECP don't but the dealers will be open to lunchtime and are likely to have them surely, get a new clip or two. Have you not got a local box specialist? Long shot but worth an early call perhaps? I'm sure I've read about aftermarket shaft issues on here before.

If you get on it very early, and get a dealer open to 3 or 4, they can vor them before 9:30 and get a delivery (certain centres) by lunchtime ok.

I hadn't thought about your ride height, but definitely as above, lower wrecks shafts constantly, so much stuff about this. The car for track doesn't need to be on it's arse, it just needs good suspension. The spanners are cheap and on ebay etc, and you could even try your local bike shop (motorbike) in the hope of borrowing some unless you have the rounded type (pointless), anyway that still mat not explain the o/s, it might require fitment of OE shafts, several have said this helped iirc.
