it might be your receiver. had a friend last night, his car was running fine last week, but yesterday, his car was glitching like mad, did a receiver check, and problem solved

Try new brushes or make sure they're hitting the comm correctly. also it may be as simple as your antenae on your radio is twisted out just a little bit. That is what happened to my friend and it took us forever to figure out what the problem was. Kinda funny cause now before I turn my car or radio on I always check the antenae.

I had a similar problem... (As did a friend of mine)
Driving down the straight, then a loss of power for a second, then back to normal.
For me and my friend it was due to the some of the screws on the lower deck coming into contact with the ground..
I kept an eye on my screw and noticed that everytime my car started glitching, the screws had come loose...
I changed to my graphite lower deck and didn't have a single glitch! (Not that i needed too, i just wanted to anyway)

I guess you could try changing the ride height too, just to isolate the problem..

Calvin I was at the race this weekend and I think almost 50% of the cars were glitching when they got near the timing loop, the lights flickerd or the driver was standing under those pot light on the roof. Me personaly I dont think it was your car I think it was something to do with the power in the building it may not be a problem for club racing but there also isint 200 chargers going at and people dynoing those screaming 8t motors. just a thought.

Forgot I had to remove the smc's and add 5 caps to my monsters to get them to run wuth no glitching. I found the more I added the less punch I had but there was no glitch. And yes I cut, clean, new brushes,oil,and break in before every run.
