At the track- Need help with a problem

Very odd, if I run over the gators that are very “rumbley” the car bogs likes it’s lost fuel, and even if I take my foot out of it the car turns off. G load doesn’t come into it at all. I checked the codes and there’s a “Mass or Airflow A circuit low” and a camshaft adjustment error. I don’t think that would do it though. Any ideas?

Taking a stab in the dark here. Two seemingly unrelated codes. I would think a loose connection since extreme vibration caused. CPS might be the first thing I'd check. Loss of crank RPM data creating incorrect MAF signal and loss of crank position could cause camshaft error. Good Luck

you were on the right track, the ECU pins had worn out and needed to be pushed back together. If I touched the ECU the car would turn off. Apparently this is a common problem for cars that see a lot of rough track time. Its new to me though
