Default 8ight with Tekin rx8 pinion alignment ???

Finally got my 8ight conversion done and when I was installing the pinion and noticed that the shaft on the motor doesn't go all the way thru the pinion gear when i was setting the mesh. Is this an issue or is it normal. It can only be installed one way so I'm guessing its normal but thought id askanyway. Also noticed the shaft has a slight bit of play front to back. Is this normal as well? Bought the motor and esc new so I'm hoping I don't have a bad one.
