Don't know why you are having problems, but Spektrum is unlikely to be the issue. A regular GTB with Spektrum is a very common combination, have one myself. For a while with a DX3.0, and now with a DX3R.

Any other info concerning the failures?

There is an issue on the GTBs with wiggling the steering servo while the battery is connected. Which I experienced the first day. Now I always unhook the battery right away. There is a fix, they can put a diode in the receiver power wire.

Also, what exactly is quitting? The speedo or the receiver? Do you still have steering? Is this in 4 cell or 6 cell applications? Are you using lipo batteries?

More info please!

Yes, you can use the regular GTB with Spektrum radios. The Spread Spectrum optimized version switches the FETs at a higher frequency that would interfere with standard radios, so you shouldn't go the other way (use a SS GTB with regular radios). Check the switch harness connector and wires. I had intermittent operation that turned out to be a broken wire in the the harness.
