You might be better off by manipulating the scroll position
(scrollLeft) of the element and hiding the scrollbars as opposed to
moving any elements physically.  I think this is actually more
performant/less flickery.

You should be able to use offsetLeft to calculate where to scroll to.
Have a play.
