If that is an actual b4 spacer, that's definitely longer than the one I have that is "supposed to be" a B4 spacer. So disregard my earlier posts.
I went off instructions from the previous page. I ordered a B4 #9602 top shaft spacer.
Ended up drilling out the top/shaft hole, fit the spacer, and it put the spur gear in a perfect spot around 2-3" mm from the motor plate.
Ran the car in my apt parking garage tonight and was grinning like an idiot the entire time. Ran perfect and think a 21t motor is perfect for this setup (and my ability).
First time I've played with an RC10 in over 20 years (had an RC10 gold pan and later and RC10 graphite)...brought back a lot of memories.
I do have a minor tracking issue where the car slightly bends to the left but that could be suspension/camber/toe issue. Just super happy that I was able to get the car on the road.
Thanks again for everyone's help. I kind of got late in the game with a World's kit (bought it 5 years ago but now getting it on the road) and just now stumbled upon the long re-re Worlds thread. Realizing that all of my issues (crappy hardware, ball cups that just seem super cheaply made, lots of QC issues, mismatched colored parts where some are white/greenish white, etc.)
Just bums me out that I had to spend this much time just getting the car on the road.
