There  was  flex with the 8' aluminum. It can be beefed up. I'm not using the cable system on this at all and has been disconnected. The rail the plastic guides run on can be stiffened down the entire length. Where the router plate mounts and slides will have to have variable stiffened. I just have to make sure tge pattern and guide aren't interfered with..

If it isn't a challenge, I'll get bored and lose interest..

It seems to me that , to avoid bowing, you could find some wood dowels that will fit  in the aluminum tubes, that would stiffen it up quite a bit.  Just a thought off the top of my head.
