FYI:
The trackspeed brake kit does not fit with old-school et40 6ULs. Ask me how I know.

I had the same issue with my 15x8 6ULs. I just got a 3mm spacer and everything is golden. Now I can run through my cheap RA1's for a couple sessions until I learn the different courses and switch over to the 9's with nt-01s when I want to get it timed.

Speed shops have them. Oreillys has them in some stores as well. If you need them that bad I can just send you mine and you can use them until you get andrews. I have no need for them until the next event.
