Can you get glitches from the battery on the plastic chassis.... or is that only the graphite one that does that?

The plastic chassis does not contribute to glitches.

glitches can occur with anything, graphite or not. The graphite is conductor of electricity so if things are not properly mouted or maintained you could have glitching problems.

On a plastic chassis, if the electronics or motor are malfunctioning or heavily prone to interferrnece you could still have glitching problems. Nothing is glitch free when it comes to electronics and radio frequencies.

The plastic chassis gives you a better chance of being glitch free, but it will never solve the problem 100%. I have been using a graphite chassis for a couple of years and never had any problems glicthing.

Chances are you won't have have problems with glitching, anyway using either chassis.

Thanks guys!

Glitches are usually the fault of the motor, capacitors, dirty brushes and bad contact, etc., but in some cases an out of tune receiver can also be more sensitive to noises that are normally being produced all the time. The plastic chassis may help mask a problem with the receiver, etc., but I haven't had trouble from either material with my new A/E stuff, or when I ran for TeamLosi.
100% of the time when I did have glitching it was the receiver, motor or a bad servo causing the problem.

ok, this may be an odd question, but can anyone tell me the spacing between the rear arm supports on the chassis? Like the distance between the left and right hinge pin holes?

rcdude19641, no sweat, alot of people have been asking me what is going on.

I am racing for JConcepts now and since i've been working there for a couple of years it's about time, LOL.

It was time for a change and at my first race with my new rides I qualified 2nd in truck and 2nd in 4wd. Problems in the mains that were not the fault of the car and truck kept me from performing well though.

I'll bust out my B4 for it's maiden run at our next Florida state series event.

, Jim

Apparentally the Atlas 19t is very good, it kinda depends on the track though too. The Orion would certainly last the longest, Checkpoint is supposed to be coming out with a 19t as well, which will most likely rock.
