Just saw another mention here of a titanium custom made clutch rod for the diablo engine.

What am is missing here. People are paying good money to have this unique piece of metal made out of titanium for weight savings??? The difference in weight between this rod made out of titanium and say stainless steel (much easier to fabricate) is tiny in terms of the total weight of the car. If the driver skips a meal the weights would balance up! Have I missed something with this titanium stuff?

If is not the weight but the strength then why not use one of the variety of very high strength steels redaably available today. They are much easyier to machine into shape and as I understand it far stronger than titanium. The latter being notourously hard to machine.

Also there is no need to have the width of the rod be the same as lamborghini has it. Why not make it 1" thick all the way immediatly up to the treads rather than tinner and gradually tapering down to the tread width (the part that brakes).
