Dynamite makes better parts for the xxxs than trinity,I have bought both and found that not only are the Dynamite less money but hold up alot better,The trinity rear alum. hubs break and the front end parts bend.Speed tech also makes some really nice stuff for the xxxs their web site is www.speedtechrc.com

You can use Associated Chassis Film. Cut a strip of it, adhere it to the chassis wall next to the battery. This will prevent any effect that contact of the battery may have that may cause glitching.

Glitching can be a hard thing to trace. This is one of the things that has been done to prevent any chance of it.

Pro3- you can use electrical tape, cover anywhere any non- shrink wrapped parts of the cell are close to the chassis.....

Be careful when you tape a cell like that- the cells should allowed to let heat escape. If the factory cell wrap is ripped and exposing bare cell, consider using new cell shrink wrap.

I was teling him to use tape on the chassis instead of buying the Associated stuff as suggested in this post........

I would nver use tape on my cells... it just looks hack.....

Also, try to keep your receiver wire from touching the chassis. This includes the antenna tube holder.

When I had glitching problems last summer at the outdoor track, I put a hole in the tube about 1/2 an inch above the holder, and fed it through there instead of the tube holder. It kept it away from the chassis.

I used a XXX-main graphite decal sheet on my x-s, before the GP+ came out. It will insulate your chassis, and look trick at the same time.

I used fuel tubing to feed my antenna through. This also kept it from getting in contact with my chassis.

Or, you can move the receiver on top mof the steering servo, so that the distance to the motor is greater. It eliminates the glitch on my XXX-S GP.
