Fuel starvation cornering

On my old e36 m3, I'd get fuel starvation / cutoff at between 1/4 to 1/2 full tank levels during hard cornering with r comps. My first event with the f30 is this weekend. Have you guys noticed any fuel starvation when your fuel is below a certain level? If so, please describe at what level, what tires and what suspension you were on. I will be on a stock sport line suspension with Nitto NT-01s, 245/40/18.

Thanks

I haven't noticed any starvation issues. Have a good time and run 3 gallons of e85 if you can find it.

The car is really solid on the track. Enjoy! I'm looking forward to seeing pictures/videos!

I've had oil starvation on cylinder 6 causing the con rod bearing on that cylinder to fail... other 5 cylinders are ok, any idea what could cause oil starvation with the n55?

I used Hoosier R6s and at Thunderhill, with a lot of constant throttle cornering I didn't feel anything on the N20. Turn 15 is a very common place to experience fuel starvation and I didn't get any where I do in my E36.
