Default fioroni sliding clutch collet trouble

what collet are you guys using on a Losi 2.0 buggy with a fioroni sliding clutch? as the Losi collet is too short when i tighten the flywheel nut the flywheel fouls the engine & the engine wont turn over.
I have used a hong nor collet but i have had to use a washer at the back of the collet to move the bell further up the crank shaft so i am not using a rediculous amount of shims.
has anyone had this problem?

I use a losi collet with a thick shim behind it on mine. You need the shim behind it or it will rub the case of the engine like you said. Keep the clutch nut nice and tight or it will slip. I found that the losi collet was the best fit out of the ones I tried. It seems slightly too short, but none of the other ones I tried would tighten down. Try the losi one with a shim behind it.
