Long travel works but there is a lot of cutting and welding involved and that's not for everybody. I tried to make it so it was an easy thing to do but what i ran into was a lot of things need to be changed otherwise things break like shocks and mounting points. It will be in my budget monchopo build for anyone looking to do that sort of thing. Now i origonally was going to beef up the gen 2 idler because i bend those like crazy, and yes they could use extra support. The problem with that is the way it rotates, it would need a bearing or bushing on the bottom end. The gen 1 idler shaft doesn't move so it can be supported from the bottom easily. I might even use a gen 1 idler on my gen 2 if this works well Makes sense?
