Harken windward sheeting car

I would like to install a Harken mainsail windward sheeting car system and new track on my 24. Have any of you sailors made the switch or have you seen a 24 with the Harken system? I was told that the new track must be raised and moved aft slightly due to the width of the car. Suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Edited 6/19
I installed the Harken car and track yesterday! The worst part of the job was overcoming the fear of drilling nineteen new holes in my boat. There was ample room between the bridge deck and hatch covers for the new track without adding a spacer to raise the track. The new track had to be positioned aft about one-half inch. The screws were bedded with rope caulk because I have not been able to find butyl tape.
