Any of your linkages..could cause a problem check for rubbing metal to metal..


The pipe connection I had happen to me.. my seals went bad and it must have taken me 2 race days to figure out what the heck was causing this mysterious right turn glitching..

Assuming you tried Rebinding the Reciever to the TX..??

I have also had switches and batteries go bad on me .. deffinately worth a check.. even grab a buddies Batt just to see if there is any difference..
I know several racers here who have all together done away with switches for this purpose..

I will indeed say that glitching is by far the most annoying part of this hobby.. It ranks right up there with changing diff fluids..!!!!
Spectrum operates in the 2.4 GHZ band and is not acceptable to metal to metal noise. He just needs to try to rebind the reciever to the transmitter, look for loose connections, or a bad battery. If that fails try a new reciever.

You mean it is not susceptible...

Haha... Good to know .. one more thing you can check off..
On another note.. do you have a spektrum radio.. or a M8 .. or other radio.. if you have a M8 is the mod done to put the antenna in the case like the factory antenna... you may have a loose connection there as well..
This is probably the last place I would check..
Just trying to come up with Ideas..

Found the problem. It was the switch in the car it had a nearly broken wire in it. I tried a new switch and problem gone.......for now anyways. I hope it stays that way.
Thanks to everyone for all the help. I would have never have thought to have tried a new switch. Oh well, live another day to learn something new.
