Default Problem with throttle going on by itself during steering, 2wd buggy

I have a problem that's developed with the throttle going on by itself (twitching), whenever I apply steering alone. It's a 2wd buggy. Anyone know where I should start looking? Thanks,

There are several possibilities, but I'll suggest the easiest to accidentally end up with first, as it will also be the easiest to fix. It sounds kinda like you have some form of channel mix going on with your radio. Check to see if there's a setting for it, and make sure it is off.

A wild guess would be either your steering is sticky and causing load on steering servo or, servo is on it's way out. Could also be a receiver capacitor failing.

servo might be drawing to much energy. a 10 dollar cap might help in the receiver. also make sure your end points are set so no binding in steering. if it binds it draws to much and starts affecting other things like throttle and acc side and you might miss a lap or two because of the over power drain.
