Cal 21 jibsheet car location

Cal 21 Sidney, ME
Does anyone have experience installing longer or additional additional jib car tracks in order to properly trim a genoa on a Cal 21?
The 18" long jib car track on my 21 seems ideal for the working jib, but about 2 ft. too far forward for properly trimming a genoa.

Fore and aft jib lead position: Hoist the sail.... pull the clew back to simulate sailing position. Bisect the clew's corner angle, extending the line to the deck. This will be your neutral jib car location... place in middle of 2 foot track.
The Cal 21 is a popular racing class.... you should be able to find owner's groups for more detailed set ups.
