Default GWS ME 262 --------------- Fan Question

Hi Guys, need some advice from ya's if you will.

I building a GWS 262 (the brushless version) Looking to get the best performance I can get out of what I have here.

SO, I'm at the stage of installing motors, I have installed Cobri 300 shims on the motors from E-Flightline (http://www.e-flightline.com/) very nice bushings by the way - perfect fit in the fan housing, also installed E-Flite heatsinks on motors, the shroud and fan is stock GWS.

Now, the question is - "How do I balance these fans to run true?"

I installed the shaft adapter into the fan then slipped on motor shaft, spun fan and I'm getting a very noticeable wobble?[X(] everything seems to be tight, but definitly not good.

Should I be buying better fans or adapters for the fans?? if so please tell me were I can purchase or please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks in advance for you help!!
