Do you have the small capacitors on your motor. Some of the newer moters have them built-in. Also make sure your antenna wire not near the battery wires or the ESC. You didn't cut the antenna wire, right?

The antenna wire needs to be the same gauge wire and length as the old one. Try trimming it down to the same length.

Keep any control wires (servo wires, antenna, ect.) away from power wires (battary wires, motor wires, ect.).
If you have a graphite chassis make sure that the antenna doesn't touch the chassis.
Don't mount the reciever on the servo.
Mount the reciever on two or three layers of servo tape.
Make sure that there are capacitors on your motor or the ones on the motor arn't damaged.
Check to make sure you don't have a smoked motor, running a car with a smoked motor can cause it to glitch.
Make sure there is not metal vibrating on metal, but since its an electric car I don't think there would be any, especially in a xxx-s.

Try mounting you reciver next to you servo, 3 pieces of tape and make sure your reciver is closer to your servo away from your motor, also you could use a piece of fuel tubing to run the ant wire through to keep it off the chassie... Works for me.. I ruan the same car....LOSI good luck racing...

Did you try all the things I suggested? Here are some more to try:

Make sure your transmitter has fully charged battaries or replace the current alkalines with new alkalines if they're low.

Try a new set of crystals.

Try all the things I said before.

Make sure the wires tha connect to your motor are not frayed at the end.

Here are a couple more I just thought of:

Mabey your module in your transmitter is damaged.

Your reciever could be damaged.

There could be a poor connection between the little metal pins in your reciever and the plugs from the servo and esc. Have someone at your local hobby shop or track rewire the pins in your reciever.
