Union Force mounting question

So I bought a pair of Forces and I noticed that the slots in the mounting discs can run parallel with the board. Which means you have three open holes to each slot (six per binder) which means you can screw the bolts in side by side or as you would normally would one hole apart.

question: have any of you union doods rocked them with the bolts side by side? Is there issues or problems with that? I would normally just go out try it but this being september and all.

don't you think it'd be more of a stable platform to have them one hole apart?

skip work and ride!

I ran mine side by side to get a wider stance and they moved all the time. Run them one hole apart.

Maybe but you can get a wide range of placement with the bolts side by side which is what the Union dude on the youtube videos suggests: "you don't need no slot system if you run baseplates parallel" he says.

That sucks. The first guy said he had no problems running them together. ????
