You left out an option:
7. Raise the rack toms and move them over
I guess I could try & raise/nudge them a bit, and see if that gives me enough room.
I'd like to try and get the hats closer to 1 o'clock, rather than 2:53:28.

I might have some time tomorrow night to try that out. I've avoided it due to the "scary radical change" fear I have.
