Default Leading Clutch Shoes - Wears conrod faster?

Guys, I've been experimenting with both configs (leading and trailing), and found out that leading wears the clutch shoes much more less, and clutch slipping is greatly reduced too.

However I must ask, will it wear out the conrod's bushing faster? Will I risk my crank shaft pin to breakage?

Thanks in advance

Why would it? As long as the repartition of the forces around the crank is symmetric (and it should be), I don't see why it would especially wear the crank pin / rod bushings...

well I believe the leading setup causes less slip, hence more force is directed on the crank pin (think of a 1/10 EP without a slipper clutch). Or am I politically wrong
