Default RC8 clutch bell not lining up with center diff gear (w/photo)

I was wondering if this is an issue or not? I tried to find a way of lining them up better, but I couldn't. Any solutions if it is a problem?

That is fine, as long as you have 100% engagement. If you want it more centered, if you used a shim behind the collet, remove that, and reshim the clutch.

What engine are you running? The grp based engines sit forward more than others. I am running the new grp with a m2c motor mount. m2c makes a mount that lets you put the engine were ever you want it. m2cracing.com

It will be fine to run it like that. There's ways that are fairly simple to line it up even better. Easiest way (said above) is to take the shim out from behind the collet.

It lined up the same on my friend's RC8. Should be fine IMO.
