Gears are the ultimate but too expensive, it's just elastic band driven cams I dont like espetially were on modern engines clearances are so small one tooth out spells disaster, some engines only have 8 thousands of a inch
clearance between valves and piston at certain points
so I will settle for a rattly old cam chain.

Currently in Ralph's garage:
Clio 15 DCi 80, Kawasaki W800, Yamaha MT-07, LMS 5MT 3 1/2 inch Gauge.
