You can switch to a GTX... That's about it. I guess there are 'internal' systems, but those are poorly designed. Really nothing else to recommend though.

If you dont do more than singlke barspins or tailwhips, you could just go to a straight chain-line.. or get one of those gyros, I dont know anything about them.. So if you definately need a gyro, go with one of those.
