Make sure that your motor has capacitors installed on it correctly!

The GT7 doesnt cause glitching problems, I ran it in my XXXS for a long time with no problems at all, and most of the Losi factory drivers chose the same ESC. I have never tried the XXTRA, but again, it wont cause the glitching unless something is damaged. Like Evicerator said, check your motor capacitors, that is the #1 cause of glitching.

Say what you will but in my XXX-S the Novak XXtra synthesized will not do well with graphite. I have run extra capacitors on my motors. As far as Team guys I don't run with any so what works for them is not the same for me. I have known people to struggle with this receiver. So after he tries the capacitors as you suggest he should try his components (servo,ESC,receiver) which will cause glitches. If the only thing it could be was caps then glitching problems would disappear from this hobby you think its that simple...I don't.

on graphite chassie cars always use three layers of servo tape to get the electronics off the chassie. If that dont work and the caps dont work try a differant servo. I have heard that the hitec servos draw a lot and cause glitching but dont know from personel expirences ( I run futaba servos ) If that still dont work take the easy way out and order a yokomo noise filter from speedtech they work very good

Here is my 2 cents:

I am running the G+ with an AM radio, and I have learned that you most definately need 3 caps on your motor, and also, I ran a couple of layers of electrical tape along the chassis anywhere the antenna came close to it. That seems to help with 99% of the glitching.

Default Common Mistake

Make sure your battery bars are not rubbing the tunnel of the car. There needs to be some sort of insulator there or the battery will short against the graphite causing the car to glitch periodically. You can use a few layers of decals to cover this or the chassis coat material that TL sells.
