washers against carbon cranks, OK or not?

are there any issues with spacing out a pedal using washers on a carbon crankset? will the washers damage the cranks? if so, is there any "safe" way to do this with carbon cranks?

thanks

rob roy owners, what is your rear spacing and hub/skewer combo?

i'm trying to get some answers on what hubs ppl use and if they have had luck (good or bad) using a quick release on track ends.

thanks in advance
