I agree with (johnsongrass1) on the Jesel belt drives as the best... After all thats what prostock uses...? Quiet is good for more than one reason... It allows you to hear other problems if they develope and if you have that whine going on then it finds it way everywhere so you cant pinpoint anything else that is making noise... Sure its kinda cool but a good true roller timing chain Vs. a gear drive for the street and most strip apps is cheaper and yes if the gear drive breaks then you gotts lots of scrap metal... BTW the timing accuracy of the trueroller Vs. gear drive is so little in difference the extra $$$ and headache from the whine does not make it worth the hassle...
