Default AR ES1 Rega 250 Arm Mounting

I have just purchased a RB250 arm for my AR ES1 TT then I found out that I need almost 3/8 inch elevation between the arm board and the base of the Rega arm. Is this normal and what type of washer you use to make up the thickness? I appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks.

Yes, because the rega does not have the adjustment fur height, you either use washers or some kind of available VTA adjusters. There are several on the market, some advertised on ebay.
