Question Engine kill

Hopefully someone can help me out. When I decide to whip my car around real fast(Like, more than 180 degrees), why does the enginge kill, or almost kill? Is there anyway to disable this? I, for one, can't stand this.

You need more gas.......

Id be willing to bet that you are low enough on gas that when you corner hard like this the pump goes dry for a second. Ive pushed my legacy pretty hard and that is the only time it does it.

One time I came out of a dirt road sideways onto pavement so fast that if I didnt have worn tires I probably would have gone up on two wheels, and with a tank just over full I had no problems.

I experianced the same thing at my last auto-x. It was the last run so I decided to go all out. I also tried left foot braking for the first time. Well I got through the saloms and into the first big sweeping left. Well I pushed the clutch in instead of the brake . As soon as the AWD was was gone I went spinning. I did a huge 360 and took out about 6 cones. The whole time I had the clutch in. Well the car died and I was scared for a second. But she turned over with no problems. I finished the course with 3 cones crammed under my car. I always have very little fuel at meets so it must be the fuel pump running dry. Like ciper said.

There is a fuel shutoff switch located (usually in the trunk) that senses when the vehicle is going to be flipped over so that it can cut off fuel to the vehicle in case of a rollover.

I beleive it is a mercury metronome type switch.

So if you do go too fast into a corner and the g forces pull the lever too far you will loose fuel to the engine.

I always thought that they trip and had to be reset manually by pushing a button, maybe you should talk to a service Tech about that though.

Or, of course, you could be low on fuel, but I would tend to think that if it was a short time without fuel in the fuel sender you would still have to use up what is in the line and that you probably would not feel it as soon as you hit the corner and more if you have been cornering for a while.
