throttle problem!

hey guys, i was at cayuga yesterday in my 05 320i and was having some issues with my throttle cutting out after i made some of the sharper right turns in the course. Basically i would exit the corner punch the gas and it would do nothing, and then a second later felt like the throttle opened up, and then it would close and open in a jerking motion for another second, until finally it would be back to normal. It was very weird that this was happening, and even stranger that it would only happen on right turns. It almost felt as if traction control was doing it, however i turned it completely off. Anyone know what the problem could be? also, how hard would it be to convert from drive by wire to drive by cable?

Thanks guys!

taking the corner so hard that the gas sloshing around in the tank didn't get picked up by the fuel pump?

how full was the tank?

it has happend with a full tank aswell... plus the corners were tight... so im guessing that there was enough fuel in my lines to compensate for the quick corners...
