Friction drive mounts have been around for decades, but unfortunately they all so far have suffered from poor tracking due contaminated thrust surfaces over time. Little bits of grit etc. get in, eventually cause random spikes in the drive rate. They require a surgically clean environment to work well....not something you'd have when exposed to the elements.
