Why?? C3's handle just fine if tuned properly and at much more reasonable budget, and they are just as much fun.

I don't think you will be able to balance that particular combination out, it's just too mismatched. Why not stay with one "system" and use DB8's or the Superlites on all four corners? At least...

I have a 7 qt oil pan that doesn't hang down at all and is definitely not the lowest thing on the car. Canton makes it, and it came with a windage tray, trap doors, and a mild crank scraper.
