Help needed w/Victoria Regal II - KT66 tubes

Any Regal users out there using KT66 power tubes? Big honkin' bottles! I don't have much clearance between the tubes and the rear support piece of the amp - maybe 1/4". I'm a bit concerned over the heat output of the tubes being so close to this support piece. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!!

Yep-- I have Gold Lions in there. They almost touch the back panel, but not quite.
No issues.

Problem solved! I emailed Mark Baier at Victoria, and he suggested reversing the top and bottom back support panels. Now it is more open and there is no interference with the KT66 tubes.

Nice solution!
BTW-- just found my favorite tube compliment that is making me think about shedding other amps: 5U4, EL34, KT66. Incredible.

The miracles of modern engineering!

Now please tell me everything about that amp. Does it have guts and balls with the right tube configuration?
How do you like the 15?
