I guess the question is simple. Do the 997.1 cars have the same oiling issues? Are people blowing them up on racetracks?

If I recall from a description by Scott of Softronic a while back, the issue is particular to the 987.1s because the engine is switched around 180 deg, which allows the oil to climb up to the AOS - usually on high-G left turns. Apparently the way it was designed for the 911s, that doesn't happen (at least I haven't heard of it being a problem in the 996/997).
