Default OS .21 for Revo clutch bell issue

You guys have any alignment issues out the box? My bell sticks out too much and rubs on the back of my slipper pad area. I was wondering if this was the norm before I go in and consider modding stuff.

This is the bolt in model.

I had a Revo about 5yrs back & put the OS 21tm engine in it, I used a 3 shoe clutch instead of the crappy Revo clutch, had no fitment issues, just bolted straight in, also fitted the Tigerdrive rotostart back plate, much better than the electric start & less weight.
Not sure what clutch it was now but it wasn't expensive, had holes around the flywheel to lighten it & alloy shoes, it worked well. A 3 shoe would be a much better option than the stock 2 shoe Revo clutch.

Thanks for the input. I'm just gonna pull it apart and go through the whole thing and see if anything pops up. The hd stock shoes have served me well in the past and have done well on everything until you go to a dedicated big block like those .28 size motors. I may pick one of those clutch units up and see what happens to spacing. otherwise, ill have to file down the collet to make it line up.
