Hollowtech BB question

I've fitted mine with one plastic spacer on the drive side and none on the other. seems to work fine, but has anyone had any problems doing this? Way I figured it was there's more thread contact without extra spacers on the non-drive side, which can only be a good thing, right?

As long as your chain line is good, then you'll be okay. The reason they have all the spacers is b/c of different BB shell widths. I run 68mm shell, therefore I have 1 Left spacer and 2 Right spacers. When I had 73mm shell, I had no Left spacers and only 1 Right.

I really don't think you're going to break off the BB cups for lack of thread contact.

Yeah - the chainline's perfect with the one spacer on the drive side. Figured it would be okay, just wanted to know what everyone's thoughts were and was wondering how many "stop! You can't do that!" type replies I would get.
None. Which is nice.
