I have heard rumors that titanium rods tend to go oblong more quickly than steel. That's kinda tough to rationalize for anything but a race motor. Considering you can build a short stroke 2.8, 3.0 on a 66mm crank and conventional components that will rev to 8800RPM, this kind of cost for weight saving on the rotational mass seems wasteful.
