Kickr Core Hub/Cassette question

I'm thinking about buying a Kickr Core to run with Zwift because my Powerbeam won't provide resistance anymore. The Kickr Core comes with the ability to put on an 11 spd Cassete. I assme, since 7/8/9 cassettes are the same size as 10 (correct me if im wrong) the spacer for a 10 spd to 11 spd hub is what I'm looking for.
Also is there a difference in the mating of a SRAM/Shimano gearset, or are they interchangeable??

The Core comes with the 1.8mm spacer you need for 8/9/10. Either SRAM or Shimano 8/9/10 cassettes will work.

You will need all the gears you can get.
if you start will a 7 speed you will learn soon why you need a 11 speed.

SRAM/Shimano are the same interface. Ignoring some newer cassette bodies. If you are using 7 speed, then you need a 4.5mm spacer. For 8+ speeds, you need the 1.8mm spacer. Those spacers are readily available, your local bike shop should have some

In ERG mode it doesn't matter. In level and simulation mode it may but on a trainer I don't worry too much about gearing and shifting anyway.
