Default ERacer gear on a Long.

I know that it was done with the Berkut, but has there been anyone out there that has put the ERacer gear setup onto a stock Long?

I have not had a chance to look too closely at a Berkut to see how much space it takes up, but it seems that the rear seat would need to be moved forward a bit to do so... If that is the case I think it may just be more worth it to install Infinity style retracts... however I like the idea of gear that does not have to compress in order to retract, it seems in the event of hydraulic loss that Shirl's gear would just drop to overcentre position due to the pogo stick setup, where the Infinity retracts might manage to get stuck in the wheel wells, or not go fully overcentre...
