This is a brilliant idea! Chain tension it's always been tricky for complex systems in VEX. You tipycally end up with your chain tension either too high or too low. Then, having to add spacers, shatfs or some other component within your c-channel hole grid it takes time too much time to calibrate and it will probably brake your chain in a final or important match. Making it adjustable saves time and effort. These guys even left room for a motor or servo in there! The whole VEX chain system has been upgraded with just like 4 small parts or so. Congrats!
