DV Sportster & XL2

Anyone know if the DV Sportster is suitable for the XL-2 ?

Ok I have the Sportster, but didn't realise that you require a stabalizer as well. I have a Steady Tracker, but there doesn't seem to be a way to connect it to the Sportster.

Question is, do I battle on with this or get rid of it ? I have an XM-2 which I could use for fluid shots, but I would prefer to keep it all on the XL-2.

Is there anyway that the spring system can be beefed up to make it work with the XL-2 ?
