Question extra washer ??

I ordered a new main driveshaft from Horizon. It comes in a package of 2 with 2 screws to attach the main drive gear and 2 very thin washers. I assume one for each driveshaft. However in removing the old one I did not see this washer anywhere. Looking on the blow up parts list in the manual I do not see this washer either. Anybody know what it is for and where it is supposed to go??

MSR, mCPX, 180 CFX, 450X

It is BLH3407. "Main Shaft Set: 180CFX". There is no other model on the packaging if you are wondering if it is a part that fits several models and maybe it belongs to a different model.

Those washers are used as shims to remove any unwanted up and down play in the shaft.
I have not needed to use them on my 180 helis.
