Corner misfire

Having a problem with my street stock. Going into corner and car just starts to stumble and fall on face until back going straight. Doesn’t make difference if I feather throttle,hold to floor, or even throw it in and try coasting through as mush if the turn that I can. I adjusted float so there just a trickle with a little rocking of the car. Any ideas or help would be great!
Thank you in advance

Does this happen if your fuel cell/tank is full, or when it's near empty? If it happens as the tank gets to a lower level, is your "fuel pickup" offset so it's at the right side of your fuel cell/tank? If not, centrifugal force is pushing the gas away from your pickup, as you're cornering, momentarily starving the engine for fuel.

Had the cell filled to the top and I did check pick up to make sure it’s in the right corner.

You should check fuel pressure first, 4 1/2 - 7 lbs is good, a tad lower or a tad higher can work but it is outside the range of what the carb needs. Now raise the float so it just trickles / seeps out without rocking the car, probably 2 -3 flats on the nut adjuster, sounds to me the car is soft on the right side springs or right side ride height is low. Keep us posted on what fixes the problem.

Sharpd12, is the carb issue any better ?  You have to keep us posted if you want some help.
