    Checdk the plug on the wiring loom going into the ECU under the dash is secure. I had this once in my S16 when I hit hard bumps in the road. It seemed to happen more on the LH rather than the RH side. The ECU is on the left, took the connector off then reseated it and pushed it in firmly and the problem went away.

    If you are low on fuel this will happen as the tank is flat and wide, causing fuel surge in corners. I found I had to have at least 1/3 of a tank on the track.

    Thats right, its fuel surge.

    On the track with decent tyres you'll need about 1/3-1/2 a tank to combat it.

    I'm fitting a surge tank to mine.

    HI All,

    THere is a product floating about that helps to reduce the fuel slapping about in the tank (thus causing instability).

    I can't remember what it is called, but basicly it's a replacementtank thats made of a honeycomb construction, which stops the fuel sloshing about. I've seen it used in a few state c'ship rally cars to help maintain balance during switch-back stages...

    It also had teh added bonus of self sealing if the tank ever gets punctured. (Unless it's a gaping HUGE hole!!!!
