Default Not getting enough volts to servo

Hey all.

I have a friend who I am working on his rc vehicle ( stampede ) and he is running a novak cyclone and a hitec 925MG servo. He is also running a new MX3.

The problem is when he is actually running the vehicle, the wheels won't turn as much as they do when we have the vehicle at rest. we can whip the wheels around no problem at rest, but under some throttle it seems as if it won't turn the wheels as much.

Since he has a new receiver, I am thinking it could be the speed control since he is able at rest to move the wheels fine.

Any ideas?

Also, he is running a large capacitor, about 10000uf.

I think I found the problem. Worked great with a seperate battery pack. and I duplicated the problem with a different receiver that I know works.
