Unhappy Xray Chassis conducting electricity?

somehow my team xray evo 2 chassis seems to be conducting electricity quite strongly from somewhere, this means that if the car bottoms out the car will go very glitchy. I have never seen anything like this before and i hope someone can help.

Are your motor wire touching the ground or the chassis?

all c.f. weave chassis conduct electricity, yet another reason for curing the edges...

but this has only just started happening, and it is of a very high level. any contact with the ground can slow it down considerably and it will steer rapidly and randomly

the jolt to the car could be anything.. servo, speedo, reciever.,m crystal.motor ect ect ect... best way to solve it is to borrow a buddies stuff.. try replacing each item one at a time, til it doesnt do it anymore...

Another way of helping with this is Ferritt coils. They are sold at Electronics warehouses...not Radio shack. I got some from Digikey, but it took a real long time.
The Yokomo anti glitch stuff seems to get rid of those nasty glitches. Here is a link to get one.

Hope this helps.
It did for me until I bought the Spektrum....

you might want to check your batteries .. they might be rubbing against the chassis when installed in the slots .. and also check all your gear and motor caps ...

Some other guy posted on this same thing.

Said he used some CA to glue the counter-sunk screw holes (as in sealing the chassis), I guess to the bulheads from the underside of chassis. Says it made a huge difference.

Just get spektrum.
