I drove a car for a guy this weekend and it would really haul down the strait away but everytime you would go into the turn it would just die and shut off, pull off the track it would fire back up after giving gas and idle and run fine, go back out and run it in the corner and it would shut off everytime,checked everything electrical and its all good, fuel pump is pumping fuel real good, gas tank is full, the thing is that it ran perfect last weekend, The carb on it is a Demon carb. Against my word the car owner said the car set to high and heated the front springs droping the car alot in the front and none in the rear could the angle of the car be the problem and if so its a demon carb with float in back and rear with sight plugs what should we do

It does kinda sound like a float height or fuel cell pickup issue. Double check the pickup hose in the cell and float height. Maybe run the floats a little lower and see what happens.
