Bowman Ring DLE-30
I replaced the stock ring on my DLE 30 and thought I should share some pics for those interested.
I went with a Bowman ring, and also did the reed block mod.
Please post any comments or questions, and happy flying!!

My DLE 30
I am in the process of replacing the ring in my 30 also.
What is the preferred method to get rid of carbon buildup if it doesn't just
wipe away (baked on) as yours did?

Oven cleaner is awesome and doesn't harm the aluminum - I've used that on big 2-strokes for years. I just spray, wait, and then rinse in the sink with dish soap and a scrubber.
Scotchbrite pads work great if it's not super thick carbon- be gentle with it depending on the grit grade of pad you get.
For the ring groove, usually I have to scrape it out with a tool of your choice - small screwdriver, etc. just take care not to bugger up the groove.
Depending on how baked on things are, 409, simple green, etc. with a scrub brush will remove it too (since these products are made to cut grease / oil / carbon)
Hope that helps, that's what has worked well for me in the past.
