Many early Ferraris used that set up didn't they? Never quite got the reasoning
Nope, just the Muira and some motorcycle engines do this. And Lamborghini stopped doing it when the 'S' model came out. Since then, every Muira engine without this change has probably been changed to date as they are obviously cherished cars now. I've no idea why such a thing was done in the first place. Gearbox oil needs to be kept very clean and carry a different viscosity and nowadays have friction modifiers and the like. Odd.
