Default esc and servo help!!

hey guys i have 1 of those buggy hbx cars that are same as the tamiya baja king (tl-01 clone) and i took it for a spin today to find that the esc just stoped working. the light wouldnt even flash to say ther was power runing through it???? and also migh servo sh*t itself aswell. so i put in a teu 101bk tamiya esc that i had of another car and a futaba s3003 servo(both are about 1 year old and havent been used for a while). i got it going prety sweet but the servo seems to twicht a fair bit, does anyone know how to stop the twitching and also have any idea why me esc just stoped working??

what kind of motor are you using? Also, what type of radio?

You may be getting interference from something, if the motor doesn't have capacitors on it or is really worn that can cause some interference.

MIGHT be glitching, try twisting your motor wires and relubing your motor bushings/bearings happened to me before,,, my motor was arcing too much after lubing the bushings and twisting the wires everything was fine... if it doesnt fix the problem try relocating your electronics moving your radio as far away from the motor and esc but at the same time as near as possible to the antenna mount. make sure it does not touch the graphite/carbon fiber too. Cheers!!!
