Exceed Monster 32 has a 5mm shaft.
Would a 5mm prop shaft adapter be what you need?

As long as the shaft isstraightm you have tow options - both involve collet or set screw prop adapters:

1) If you can, turn the motors around and mount them on the other side of the fire wall. Then put a prop adapter on the sharft sticking out the new fron of the motor. If the plane is already built, this is probably not an option, but you might be able to use a motor mount that will let you accomplish the same thing, but leave the motor in the same place.

2) Push the motor shaft out the front of the motor. Pull the wheel collar off the back and any snap rings. Then pull the whole bell and shaft out the front of the motor. Loosen the set screws attaching the bell to the shaft and remount the bell with the shaft sticking out the front. IIRC, the bell is a tight fit on the shaft and you'll need to use a press to get it out.

Another way of doing this would be to leave the motor assembled, but pull collar and retaining rings off the back of the shaft. IIRC, there's a groove at the back end of the shaft - install the snap ring into this groove, loosen the bell's set screws and press the shaft out until the snap ring is flush with the rear bearing.

Either way you get it there, you put a prop adapter on the shaft sticking of of the fron of the motor. You may need to adjust the spacers to get the right placement relative to the front of the plane.
