GKT 18V-52 GC compatibility with FSN 140 tracks

I just got a new GKT 18V-52 GC track saw - quite a nice machine.

However, I was surprised to see that it's not really compatible with my FSN 140 track (the older model - Festool style).
If I let the track tensioners really loose the blade barely clears the track.
But with the track tensioners all the way in, there is a ~0.2mm overlap.

I could use a wider aluminium blade and make enough clearance - a bit like the initial rubber cut. But it seems a bit weird - like I'm missing somethig.
Or maybe they're just different generations, so Bosch hasn't tested them together.
Has anyone else encountered something this?

Many thanks!
