So none of the screw is sticking out?

You can always by a new crackshaft for the engine but you might as well invest in a new better engine. If you're not willing to do that, check out eBay and get yourself a used hyper .21 and swap the crankshafts.

I would try to install a new screw (with locktite) and hope that 2mm of thread going into the shaft would hold it fine.
