Sorry mods if this is in wrong place

Sometimes when I pull a 180 e brake turn at 55-60 mph my engine stalls. Anyone else have this happen? Does the computer shut down the engine because it think controll has been lost? It'* annoying since I didn't lose controll, I meant to do it.

$%#@%$#%#$%$#%#$%$%#$%#$ E-brake turn in a bonne or any fwd vehicle? Yes, its a safety feature when "harsh" conditions, IE sliding out of control or spinning, power is cut, but not totally so if you would need to regain it that it is still there some.

this is kind of a strange question... i dont think there is any sort of safety feature here,
however, if you are doing it on dry pavement and there is a large snap in momentum, the fuel pump might shut off via inertia switch. or you could be rolling backwards with the car in drive and your foot on the gas, which will force teh car to stall aswell...

It only happens on dry pavement or dirt parking lot, never happens on snow or ice.

probably because that is bad for your car, and you shouldnt do it. snow and ice is ok, but dirt and pavement, thats just wrong.

idk what you guys are talking about but I'm with jack, sliding the car around at 55-60 in a big parking lot is freaking fun!! I normally dont use the e-brake at those speeds because my cable is streched enough as is, but whipping the car around is f'n awsome!!!
