Default Can I use the RC like that?

Hey all!
I wanna use GRP wheels on my RC, so I've had to install wheels extender.
Now, I've got some space between the wheel hub and the hub set.
Can I drive the RC like that?
Should I perform any action on it?

Thanks!

If there is any end play, or in and out play in the hub, you may want to use some shims behind the pin

Rusrydrift , yes there is a play between.
Doesn't the extra shims will cause heat due to the impact it will cause while spin over the wheel hub and the bearing or hub set?

The diameter of the shim should be small enough that it'll only touch the inner race of the bearing.
