99 Prelude Question

I have a 99 prelude H22A4 circle track racecar. the car has won 20 races in two seasons, but recently the car has started just shutting down occasionly.
The engine isnt dying or anything, when im coming out of the corners and i get back on the throttle it hesitates to go and then it just shuts down completely and after a few seconds it will come back to life. The car isnt failing to pick up fuel in the steep turns bc i keep it full, it has to be an elctical issue somewhere. Any ideas?

Maybe 20 races being to much for your old girl, a luder isn't a race car really, isn't it..

But it is! 4th and 5th gen 'Ludes have a long history of success on racetracks.

OP -- I wouldn't discount a fuel problem -- electrical problems usually aren't G-dependent. Have you checked the fuel pressure to see if the pump is failing? Have you tested it turning in the opposite direction, to see if the same problem occurs?

Re: 99 Prelude Question

I think my computer is moving a little bit and causing it to shut down. ive studied it and believe that might be the problem. its not bolted down because its a different computer, its been zip tied down really good and has wiggled loose a little.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
