Thanks for sharing the knowledge.
The picture is getting clear, we are able to design a squish band around the entire chamber because of the large bore size and ideally located valves and spark plug. The end result is increased squish action resulting in improved combustion.
A picture is worth a thousand words, this may not be accurate or even close for that matter.

Thats a fancy way of saying we point the air fuel mixture to the center of the chamber over the spark plug so we burn it faster, cleaner and make more power.. The idea is to get the majority of the air fuel mixture over the plug and have it very agitated. We accomplish this by manipulation of the chamber, squish quench pads and piston dome design
Can we now turn to Unkl Ian's intrest?

Eliminate vortex generation on the quench pads. Interesting idea.
I'll have to think on that one.
