We've consulted with teams to spec out DS systems, but the 'requirement' for DS is extremely low, thanks to some of our products actually.

Our pan on its own is good to ~1.6Gs. Anything over that tended to be problematic due to oil surge out the heads causing the oil available in the sump to be reduced. Our Oil Control Valve that was released a few years ago addressed that issue, which generally allow ~1.8Gs sustained. That's pretty much open class T/A territory. I welcome logged telemetry above that, but have yet to see it be produced. A couple have claimed to, but no logs So between you and me, we do have a new pan and pickup coming out for the top 1%-ers. It addresses high crankcase pressures and oil surge up the back of the crankcase during extreme launch/gear changes at 800+hp, improved oil control to the pickup, and the highest flowing oil pickup ever (yes we did test them all).

But in short, we spec out DS systems per application. The few instances we have, it has really been required; Circle/oval track, and Aerobatic Aviation applications. For anything else, there's just no need for the complexity, maintenance, and cost.
