Oops, try that again...

I recently purchased an Ang. 10-150 zoom for my Arri S. I am a little concerned about hanging this lens off the front of the camera, given the relative instability of the turret. The obvious answer is to use a bridgeplate/lens support system, but it occured to me that I have never actually seen an Arri S with one of these. I was hoping to mount the camera to a moving vehicle (and use the zoom function in the same shot). Should I be worried about dynamic forces pulling my mount out of whack? Is there an affordable generic bridgeplate that I can use? Should I bother to design/build one myself? So many questions... B)
