What oil cooler kit are you currently running, does it meet the cooling requirements of the track work that you do?
I have one additional oil cooler (the AR design one which is placed in front of the radiator behind the kidney grille) and an upgraded stock oil cooler with a Setrab core.

It was after adding the lastmentioned one that my oil temps were perfect, even with extensive track use during summer. With only the additional AR design oil cooler and the stock oil cooler, temps went beyond 130 degrees celsius in particular when driving very fast on the German motorway (in excess of 240 km/h) which I was not very comfortable with.

I have no doubt that your products will also improve the resistance to thermal stress considerably. When I started modifying my car, the options for all this were much more limited than they are today!
