I ran one in a big block Nova and I have one in my camaro now, It is not a garentee that you will have a failure in the valve train but it is more likely to happen then if you run a chain. My big block ended up breaking the camshaft itself. I have had friends whom have had stock rocker arms fail with only 1000 miles on them and they were new pieces. I am running one in a 355 now and have had it in my last motor, I am running a high dollar valve train (Crane and Lunati pieces) and I check eveything I can as much as possible.
I would not give up the gear drive for another chain in my car though, I like the whine to much and you get alot of looks!!!
