    Do you mean you get complete electrical failure????

    If so, it points at the battery, had one before that did that..the battery terminals were loose..

    Apparently so. It's not my car, it belongs to a neighbour.

    It just seems to happen when turning hard right.

    I had a similar problem on an old Porsche I had, fault was the air box/intake, it had a flapper like devise that was spring loaded, the spring had weakened so when corner hard in one direction the air flow was cut out so the engine stalled. Don't know if it could be a similar thing, just a thought.

    if it's your neighbours car, check the battery's securely held in the battery tray and check the terminals are firmly on the battery.. also check the earth point where the earth lead connects to the body.. had one before where all that was left jioning the wire together was the outer insulation, the wire appeared sound but had no continuity.
