sorry to get back on late .. but 3 pieces of servo tape will insulate you electronics better and i never glitch .!!!! one piece doesnt insulate the electronic enough .....it works on some cars but iv never had any problems ... its only tape and can save you a headach!! i ve been running airtronics for about 14 years and i dont glitch.. ive used the same radio and servo and diffrent speedo's through the years and dont have the problems you have give it a try ..

MugenMTX3Kid;

The Zip Ties themselves should not be responsible for any glitching. HOWEVER, if you have Servo wires, zip-tied to Power wires. This is a No, no!

You want to keep all of your low current wires (Servo leads, etc) as far away from the HIGH current wires (ESC, Motor, Battery) as possible. This especially goes for the Antenna wire also.

Also, try twisting the pos and neg wires that lead to the motor. The current they carry can cause glitching, and twisting them around each other will help to negate each other out. There's a paragraph about this step in the new RCX mag.

Are you running a schottky diode? Upgrade to the 25 amp version from novak (either the solder on version to the motor, or inline one) I was having glitching at one track and after changing to the inline one, my glitching went away. 8 dollar part.

That novac diode is over priced IMO. Just run 2 diodes.

Replace the capacitor(the big keg looking thing) and see if that helps. I know this helped out on one of my cyclones years ago when I encountered a glitch.

If that doesn't help, the best way to diagnois the problem is to use differant equipment, do you have a friend that has a radio system you can try? Same thing for every other component.

Like I've said before on here, I had a serious glitch one time and replaced everything on the car new(motor, esc, steering servo, etc.) and on my last attempt which was my radio system it turned out it was the radio system. I bought everything else for nothing but I'll never forget what I learned.
