50.4mm BCD cranks and full chaincases?

The bike it's on currently has a crank with the chainring connected directly to the right crank arm, but I'd like to go to a crank with longer arms. As far as I know, there's nothing similar available in a 175mm length, so I'm wondering if the VO cranks with the 50.4mm BCD and a single ring will work with the chaincase. I took a quick measurement and the innermost ring on the chaincase would cover the bolts  maybe they would rub? Maybe I could cut out that innermost ring (but as a result have less coverage from the chaincase)?

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
