Your latest observation is exactly why I said to go with cylinder magnets on the rotor that are the same diameter as the coil core, or smaller, but as LONG as you can get them. This gives you a MUCH thicker rotor, which is more stable. It is the MASS of the magnet that provides the attraction. And the tighter you can focus it the better, within the parameters of your build.
