Default Running out of breath!

Hi there, I'm new to this forum so don't tear me a new *** if I ask a stupid question 😈

I have a tt 225 track car with a stage 1 Remap ,panel filter and a Decat ,nothing else modified engine wise.
I have an issue , from a standstill or a rolling start at any speed it will hit 140mph with a gear to go but if a spank it put of a corner it straightens up and runs out of breath and won't do more than 90.
It does it on left or right corners whether it's got a full tank or not.
It doesn't splutter, just looses power.
Under normal driving conditions it is spot on and very reliable.
Anyone got any ideas to throw at me??

Cheers
​​​​​​​Liam 😊

Doubt if it is electrical, but could be a fuel pump or fuel filter issue.
I know this is a stretch but a a partially clogged fuel filter is like someone with kidney stones. The stone is OK until it moves, as in a moving all the fuel in the filter during a turn and then it gets lodged passing to the intake or bladder, I guess.
There, told you it was a stretch. :-)

well I see where you're coming from, and that's an easy fix,ill get a fuel filter today regardless.
Surely it would splutter or pink if it were fuel , which it doesn't? ?

I've been doing a bit of digging and I think it may be connected to the lateral speed sensor and connected to the esp button.

I didn't realise that there are two settings for turning the esp off.

I always turn it off for track days but not on the road .
I am doing a charity track day at Rockingham this Sunday so I shall leave the esp on and see what happens and then I will turn it off and then I will try it with the esp and efl (which I didn't know about till 11 pm last night) off.

apparently pressing the esp once only turns it off but it still runs in the background as a failsafe but if you keep your finger on the button longer then another light (efl) shows on the dashboard as well as the esp and it's totally disabled.

I will follow this up on Sunday if the problem is cured.

Cheers for your input 😊

Well its not that as a second light didn't come on the dashboard and I tested going round an island a couple of times then flooring it up to a very high speed with the esp on and off and it didn't do it , UNTIL it reached an engine temp of 90.

​​​​​​​The plot thickens!
