Default anyone had the same experience ?

I currently have coilovers , sway bar , ALK .. so the car corners pretty well . but i figure when I charge into a 80 degress corner fast with empty tank of fuel ( almost when the lights come on ) , the moment I try to gas out hard on the exit , my car would bogs , similar to fuel cut. I am thinking maybe the fuel got to the one side of the tank and the fuel pump couldn't get anything to the engine .

anyone have experience same thing as i do ? or its something else .

Yes you can definitely get fuel starvation under hard cornering when you're that low on fuel. I've heard it can happen with a lot more gas in the tank than that, so I try to keep the tank at least half full when I'm at the track.

It depends on the car. The WRXs (most) are fairly immune to it but the GC bodied cars typically have lots of fuel starve issues. This is perfectly normal. Keep an appropriate amount of fuel in the vehicle for whatever motorsport activity you are dealing with is the simplest advice. STis...I'm not as sure on. I think they are more like the WRX and can go until the dummy light comes on before having issues; I haven't heard any owners complain at autoxs about it.

Further reiterating my point that WRXs typically don't have this issue. Depends on the car though. Type of vehicle for the original poster is unknown.
