Oh didnt know that.. well do you have any metal objects around the kit? Sometimes when you switch the car on and put an allen wrench near it, it starts to glitch.. Other than that, sorry i cant help you maybe someone else can.

It sounds like you have tried everything you can think of. The only thing I can offer is use the FK items on the Evo2 chassis, and vice versa. Perhaps it could be the graphite.

Default another supplier........

I put in an order with precision rc http://www.precisionrc.com/
and they shipped it complete from Hong Kong and was at my door in seven days. The order included several hard to find X-Ray items that are needed to keep your car on the track.

Thought I'd let you guys know.

I have not long ago purchased fk and installed all electrics from my EVO-2 ( never clitched )
now my new FK Clitches like it is having a fit of some sort , i have tried changing the antena around , rerouting the aerial , inclosing the aerial from the receiver in fuel tube , but still no luck , if i put it all back into my EVO-2 all is fine

i am running 27 meg FM with Novak GT7 and either a P2K or Monster

Did Xray change thier carbonfibre in theFK to a more Metallic Fibre or is somone above giving me a hard time

all coments considered
Thank you
War11x - look for the most obvious tings first. look for damaged/loose wires, try different crystals, different motors even borrow a mod motor they are less likely to exhibit glitching, solder the capacitor points on the end of the epic motors. etc

Also get someone else at the track to take a look, it can sometimes be something obvious that you cant see.

I would check whether the brush wire on the negative pole hits the chassis. I allways have a piece of electrical tape on the chassis underneath the endbell to prevent this as you can get interference otherwise. Also when mounting the antenna use the biggest plastic spacer that comes with the kit to raise the antenna a bit higher away from the chassis.

Did you seal the edges of the chassis with ca? I seal every edge of the car even the cut out for the motor . Try it.

To answer your question from sometime ago. Yes the bulkheads and somo of the other parts are coated. My guys striped them for me. The aluminum that Xray uses is more like 2024 than 6061 the diference is that the color will be darker for the 2024 compared to the 6061 stuff. We did one car in black and one it red and I tell you try look awesome. You also have to nake sure that all the NON aluminum items are removed (setscrews, orings, etc.) Hope this helps.

It's called anodizing. You strip the old anodizing off and redo it in the color you want. It's a chemical process.

Provided its aluminum only....

Some guy sells home kits for doing your own anodizing if you want. Plus he sells a book that explains everything including the process and tips and tricks.
