Oil pan/Crawling question

Short of running a dry sump set-up, what is the best pan for hardcore crawling?
I have a ($$$) built solid roller cam SBC that I would prefer to keep lubricated. What works, what doesnt ect.
Im thinking a road race type pan would work the best because it is designed to keep oil to the sump in cornering,braking, and accelerating, which is a lot like us going up, down and laying on our sides.

This is my pick, what do you guys think?

Some baffles are about all you can do, all oiling systems still rely on gravity to pull the engine to the bottom of the pan, which we are fighting against.

you can never go wrong with a pan from Canton Racing. Extremely low profile and set up with the pick up and trap doors to direct the oil.
