Drivetrain Noise

The hard plastic idlers seem to be common culprits for drivetrain noise. Certainly the case for my Volae. I don't find it annoying, but it certainly is far more noticeable than on my DF...

Some folks have indicated that properly sized rubber o-rings snapped onto the idlers can sharply reduce the noise level. I haven't tried this yet.
