AP's still the most ideal system for us, but I just don't want spacers. If you do go for the 368mm kit, would love to see whether there's any clearance at all with our 219Ms. Go for it
haha Well before summer next year I will probably go down that route and see if re-positioning the weights will allow them to work with the 219Ms. If not then I'll have to run spacers! Wonder if I ran a square rear 219M setup if it would then fit without spacers on the front...
Running the rear 219 upfront will clear the AP 368 without the need for spacers, but obviously, it's additional weight and handling changes.
