Of our pans I've seen involved in off track incidents, I've not seen a failure yet. The off road guys use hard-core belly pan setups, but a lot of track guys use the OEM pan or trimmed down versions of the OEM pan (access to filter and drain usually). We have seen a few come back dented from rod failure on drag cars, but never to a point of causing a leak. The pans are pretty tough. If you strike just the pan repeatedly or specifically JUST the pan I could see how it could fail, but you're talking a significant amount of force. My standard answer here is 'if you hit something hard enough to cause a complete pan failure (doesn't hold oil) then you've likely got much more expensive repairs to worry about than an oil pan'.
My car is a 95, and haven't ever seen one for the 93-01 cars. Maybe a dealer can order one.

If I get the pan from Oakos, will it be the cast version and come with the spacers/hardware? I already have your pickup and tray.
