Gear drives transfer harmonics into your valvetrain. They also can make damage worse to an engine if it occurs. The chain on a timing chain set can act as a fuse if you damage something in your valvetrain and snap when something breaks and gets stuck. Gear drive will just power through that and possibly chew up other stuff too that hasn't been damaged yet.

This is exactly right. Who wants to listen to a damn gear drive anyways?
