JLM got it. The con rods are broken at the big end bearing creating a perfect mating surface. The MSC is made of forged steel, and is machined with a notch in the bearing that mates to the crank shaft. They then put a lateral load on the notch and the con rod snaps the bearing in half (or almost exactly half). When the con rod is clamped around the bearing, there is a perfect mating surface between the cap and the con rod. This produces a more precise mating surface than the conventional cutting of the con rod. Now that's pretty cool stuff.
