Hi Alex, have you tried linking the rails and damping them, Linking can give you more stiffness for little weight and some quite light damping might stop them ringing to good effect (maybe a strip of sticky back felt or so?)
on my experiments i can see the results of this sort of work on the sidebands of the plots.
