rcguy - you've hit the nail on the head.

I've had no trouble with my layout.
The only difference is I mount the receiver on the top deck

Here are some tips that should help alot:
If it is your motor, give it a re skim and seat the brushes in again (I think somebody already said this)
Have you glued the edges of the chassis and top deck? if not do this.
Move the PT as far away from everything as possible.
I had glitches with my Pro4, I mounted the receiver on its side and on top of the servo.. all gone My freind also had the same results by doing this with his Pro4.
Does it glitch with all crystals/frequencies?
Are any of your speedo/servo wires spilt? and keep them tidy and away from each other.
If you are using a fet lead keep it as far away from everything else as possible.
Have you tried different sets of cells? check too see if one set needs re heatsrinking.
Also, if you are going too put your own capacitors on the motor, take the circuit board off it first, adding new ones will half the affect if you dont!!
Interfeirence is a pain when you dont have a clue whats causing it . Good luck!

As he said before, it was caused by the motor so it has nothing to do with the placement of the electronics. Many people who I have talked to have had this problem, including me. If you have an older motor laying around, take off the middle solder tab so you dont have to solder the caps directly to the can. After doing this, you can remove the board with the stock ones on it.

I don't have a pro4 but here in england a lot of us on our tc3's with graphite chassis put the reciever on top of the servo, and then we made a hole in the aerial tube above the graphite so it just went into the tube without touching the chassis, if this doesn't work, replace the motor wires etc and schotty diode (sorry if i've spelt it wrong ) and motor capasitor and move the switch away from the motor. If this doesn't work i do not know

Back from the race...

There was no glitching there. Probably just some interference in my neighborhood.

I appreciate the replies!

when running your car on the street/outside your house...one of the main cuases for interfearance is overhead/under ground power lines.

these lines carry thousands and thousands of volts and believe it or not, they through out really strong frequencies, so strong they will effect just about anything that uses radio frequencies.

on my street there is a power line that goes straight down teh middle, all the way down.

if i drive my car on it (27mhz for mini-t..or 40mhz for 12th/tc) my car goes crazy and i have to make a mad run for it if my car speeds off ahead.

but either side of its, its fine.

try it on a different street/area where you know there aren't any power lines near by
