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:

You're welcome.  Did you ever get some video of the beast in action?

unfortunately, no. My gopro is an original hero model and I think its well past its prime. sound is shot on it and the battery dies after a minute or two. video quality has gone down hill as well. eventually I'll borrow a buddies and throw it on youtube
