Shapeoko 2 XXM upgrade

Picked up a used Shapeoko 2 (Makita router) that was expanded to 24" x 36" work area. I’ve gotten it to work great after rebuilding the harnesses and chains, only issue is when I clamp too tightly I get some flex, so gonna stiffen with some foam boards.
My question, is it truly worth it to upgrade the X Carriage Extrusion? X Carriage Extrusion | Inventables

Does it make that much of a difference for the work required to change it out?

The Shapeoko 2 is off-topic here, since it’s an Inventables product.

The machine should work well w/ Carbide Create — please let us know if you have any difficulties on that front (which would be on-topic here).
