I can imangine some oil on the shoe can help to break in the shoe w/o much wear. You want to burn the surface in a controlable way to give a more strong surface.

Regarding slip, yes, it will give a better grip on the car but more important it will keep the engine in higher revs so with a better torque for a faster acceleration after the corner..

True, I keep forgetting on-road racers tune their clutches to engage at insanely high RPMs, and in that circumstance you really want some slip because you can overheat the clutch and gall the shoes to the clutch bell in a fraction of a second.

That wont work with the collet as the spacing remains the same on the clutch nut.
