Skidpad testing methodology

I am thinking something similar to the Pedder’s Suspension test of the G8 here:

wherein they show both lean angle of the vehicle while cornering and measure g-force attained on a constant radius skidpad. Those seem to be ideal ways to measure performance of the current suspension setup on the Cadillac CTS, then apply mods, and then retest to determine effect.

Also using a tire temperature gauge seems interesting, although only in test consistency.
