many, for starters:

1. better for road racing as the oil won't experience problems w/ g forces turning, etc.

2. Mount the oil in a central locaiton up top= more oil capacity= cooler oil naturally

3. As prior poster said, no need for a big pan = can mount engine lower if needed

4. No windage problems in pan as no oil sitting in crankcase
