ok guys here it is in prep for burnout comp i was parctising :D

and as i throw the car into a nut nice and hard left or right it dies! gets about 180 deg through a nut, no splutters no coughs just bang stops
will start straight away though??
this was with over 3/4 tank of fuel so i can really see that the fuel is being "pushed" away from the pump??
would it be wise to get swirl pot? ( i hope not )

HELP i need my car to do nuts!

Maybe you've got a loose wire or connector that can't handle lateral G's?
May even be the pump connections inside the tank.

Could be as Pete said.. When I went on one of my driving courses a girl who had a 90's commodore did the 'big skid' and almost every spark plug lead fell off! :lol:

Have you got a chip on the J3 port franky?

My CAPA chip wasnt sitting right and was causing all sorts of weird s**t until i got in and gaffa taped it to the ECU.

Its really weird because my mate came around in his AUIIXR6 the other day complaining about the fuel pump relay having fits. Something to do with the ECU in his case.

Maybe AU is 4.8 years too late for the Y2k bug? lol

Because now you're not doing any lateral G's.

Whack a fuel pressure gauge on, that will tell you if its losing fuel or not.

That assumes it's in good condition.....What if a connector was half hanging out.
