Ok, that's what I thought.
Have you given any thought to stiffening it?
I noticed with my Supermoto setup that the swing arm really flexes a lot.
I wondered if it would perform better being stiffer..
To test, put the bike leaning against a wall, then push the top of the rear wheel towards the wall...
Mine really moves.

I got one to work, but not both.  Abbott, you can now post pictures directly to the site instead of using Imgur or Photosuckit.  Here's a handy guide:

We really need some video of this beast.  Even a simple phone video of it roaring by.  Withholding video is cruel and unusual punishment as defined by the Geneva Convention or some other treaty I'm sure. grin
