    Can these OpenRail plates be used to create a gantry that rides in the grooves of V-Slot like this (e.g. using the Solid Wheels) so one would not need the OpenRails?

    No, the hole spacing for the wheels is entirely different.

    I need a gantry cart that can ride on a 40x40 v-slot. I don't see a proper plate for that unless I choose OpenRails. Am I overlooking something?
