The rear hub I am trying to mount the sprocket to is a high flange hub and the top of the flange is almost dead center in the bolt circle of the sprocket. i am toying with the idea of just redrilling the sprocket with 8 holes an inch higher but dont know if the extra leverage is going to be a big enough factor against the spoke strength to worry about or not. Anyone have a situation similar to this that might be able to offer some insight?

Never heard of that problem before, but if you redrill you should have no problems. Lay the sprocket over the wheel and mark new holes to coincide with the spoke spacing.
