You need the end spacer that is a Losi step type countersunk screw.
It will space the engine shaft properly even though it is not sticking through the front bearing completely.
Check your manual. That is how it is designed.

Red face Relax....

Don't get defensive. We are just trying to help. I have seen a lot of guys loose their outer washers and not pay attention and have the same problem. When you described the shaft not going all the way through the bearing I thought you may have over looked your washer. That's all.

Two things I had wrong when my clutchbell hung up on the flywheel:

1)The clutch nut was loose.
2)I forgot the shim that goes in between the clutch nut and the 5x13 bearing.

If those two are OK, I would try adding an extra shim or using a thicker shim. I think this has all been covered here though.

Red face Maybe this will help...

There are a series of very small washers I used to use for electric motor tuning. I have always kept my stuff around so I have long forgotten where I got them. Anyways, these washers are 3mm ID and smaller than the inner race of your bearings. They are used to shim out the countersunk washer to give you more play.

Look in the electric section for shim solutions. Motor shims. May be Trinity Kinwald chassis shims????

They work great!

It should tell you in the manual. It's about .5mm or something like that...
