always good to try and prevent oil starvation. Haven't heard of anyone baffling the sump, and at least for autocross, I see decent oil pressure throughout the course. I'm not sure if that's how you tell if you need to change something, though?

Lots of us track and autocross our Yarii, and I've never heard of a bearing problem. Shouldn't be an issue. Just be sure you keep the oil level full. Even up to half a quart over full is not a bad idea for the track.

could become a problem with really stiff suspension and slicks... now that im running higher rates, it worries me a little more. with hoosiers, the risk is probably higher, but still, should be ok with an extra half quart.
