Moving along with track prep and it is time for me to make a decision on a baffled oil pan. I am torn between the GPan3 and the TOC V1.1 of which both are comparable in price. Given the experience of this group, I did some searching and didn’t find a comparison so I started this thread. I have added the detailed descriptions below. Give me your thoughts!
The gPAN3 is a must if you track your Lotus. This is a direct replacement for your stock pan and will make oil starvation a thing of the past. A heavily-baffled cavity reduces vertical oil slosh. Additionally, the pan has been tweaked for clearance to ease wishbone removal. Oil sensor port has been relocated to the front of the pan to reduce wiring. Optional Turbo oil return port ($45) can be added. The simple, high-quality and beautifully welded gPAN3 is track-focused and easy to install. Works with the stock windage tray and stock dip stick and comes with detailed installation instructions. Data proven performance on track!

Total Oil Control(TOC)V 1.1:
Our TOC (Total Oil Control) Wet sump oil pan is a great addition for the street or track car looking for superior control of the oil in the engine while increasing the volume as well.
This pan is a sure fire solution to mitigating the likelihood of a loss of oil pressure in the motor for the track day enthusiast or racer. The additional oil capacity will help to prolong oil life and stabilize oil temperature.
Additional features include
BOE Kerropak oil pan gasket for easy removal/ maintenance. (Other pans on the market require RTV gasket maker to seal the pan to the block).
Additional Windage tray that works with the OEM tray on the block
"Anti-Climb" walls inside the pan
One direction "trap doors" within the collection box in the pan.
All Aluminum Construction with expert TIG welding
Magnetic drain plug with o-ring seal
