Okay, I'm a bit embarassed to asked this but:

1) If seem to have fogotten what the advantages of a dry clutch are vs. a wet one.

2) I know Testastretta means narrow cyclinder head but what is the signifigance of a narrower head? Is it a more oval in shape than round? I understand it's designed to increase peak horsepower but am not sure how.

Reduced drag, easier maintenance....


Cool sound, opportunities to accessorize.

a narrower included valve angle allows the valves to be opened sooner and with more lift before they interfere with the other valves in the cylinder. it also reduces the angular difference between the camshaft and the valve, which makes the valve easier to open, which can (not always) allow higher max rpm.

dry clutches are cool. less drag because they do not run in an oil bath. less oil contamination from clutch dust.
