Well, that's an idea. Think I'll look at small pieces (~3") of rebar, zip-tied, at the outer edges. I'm thinking they'll be less prone to issues being next to the wheels.

When I took nearly all the slack out of my engagement cable, I got idler slap. But, I simply added slack back into it and that took care of the slap. Engagement is much better, too. Find the sweet spot.
