Default Problem w/my new picco .12 and GT2

Anyone using the .12 picco in their GT2. the shaft size for the picco is 6mm vs. 7-8mm on the stock AE.15. It looks like Picco tried to make up for the smaller shaft by putting a really thick collet with it. In fact its to thick to work with the flywheel that comes with the GT2. Anyone know the answer for this?

I've though of a work-around. I could just grind the Picco collet down. that might work. but aside from ordering a bunch of collets online, im stuck.

thank you.

Usually there is an option collett in the box to put on the engine. Maybe try this one?

Picco is kinda wacky.... If the angle matches up with the kit collett, then you can just grind it shorter. If the angles don't match....then you've got trouble.

I would also call Orion for help on parts because they used to use Picco based .12 engines.
