Oh Marty - one thing - time versus effort versus money. T tracks are fairly inexpensive - may be worthwhile just to replace them as the amount of time you will spend with the "drill baby drill" approach - may not be worth it. Even when you get the adjustable genoa cars - they still have to pop into the holes to maintain the tension unless you go with a dual forward and aft adjustment of the genoa car. The simple method like the one I added to "HG" uses the wind in the sail to pull it forward and tension on the adjusting line to hold / pull it back (mine is the Harken setup).
