i find my mcfk stem unable to lock the steer tube with the washer between the flange installed (fiber paste applied), but it locks tight without those washer at a torque of 4.5nm, is it ok to remove the washers? (the menu warned that the washers mist be in place)

Ask the manufacturer, Mcfk talks with their customers, i contacted them couple of times.

I’ve been riding mine without the washers and no problems. Just make sure to apply carbon paste and correct torque.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Further, also note that washers between screws and inlays at the tube clamp are installed at the factory.
Never install or use your new carbon stem every without these washers.
These washers are important and ensure the stability and safe clamping of the stem.

Exactly where do they go? The LBS can't figure it out.

I presume you mean the (2) washers.... they go in the split where the stem is connected to the steerer tube.
