How many of you guys with Marchesinis had a problem using your stock spacers when you put these wheels on? Mine roll great and I have no problems...but there is a small gap where the spacer isn't actually touching the inside of the fork. Just want to know what you guys did to remedy this.

call Yoyodyne.
get the right ones.
That gap will make the wheel vibrate under braking. Which is not the most confidence inspiring feeling.

What side because the left hits the axel and that has a shoulder. Look at the stock wheel and notice it doesn't even have a spacer on the left side the axel is the spacer (well the one there is just deep enough to extend to the seal lip).

Left side is good.
Right side you can see the small gap.

What do you think?
Yoyodyne I'll check out.
Vibration...mmm...maybe a little bit. Not quite sure I've felt that, but then again, This is the only way I've known the bike. Never had stock rims. Didn't even know the gap was there until another RC owner showed me he couldn't put aftermarket rims on his because of this same thing. He didn't want to "risk' it and damage anything. I hope I haven't done that. I don't feel anything abnormal. Wheel spins fine w/wo weight on it.

Mine were the same way. I always just shoved the axle a little farther through and the shoulder on the axle took up the gap so there was no left/right play in the wheel, the stock wheel spacer/glorified washer was too thick to fit. 2 years of racing on it I never noticed vibration or had any issues..
