Did you end up going with an accusump or dry sump setup on this car? Seems like it would definitely need it.

Holy hell that is a gorgeous car and the work is top notch.

We installed a baffled oil pan for now. We plan to go with a dry sump system in the future

Beautiful car you have!

I've built four LS3 Miatas and all had oiling issues with baffled pans; even on relatively low grip tires like the Maxxis RC-1. We've since converted them to dry-sump with parts sourced from Aviaid - all good now! We did change to a manual steering rack to get a bit extra pan clearance so that we could run an OTS low-profile pan that was already in Aviaid's catalog.

The car is getting all the wiring done currently, we typically would sub these things out because our time is better spent on fabrication (like our N1000RR project that has been getting lots of lovin' lately), at any rate the guy that is working on it came highly recommended so I'm looking forward to see the result.
Slim chances of car making it to SLB in COTA at this point... We've been hoping but the timeline that was announced is just super tight and we won't tow this baby all the way to Texas untested.
