Default New Servo gliching issue

So i just got and installed my new EXI D227f servo from hobby partZ the other day and took it racing last night. At first i was impressed. works great but at about the 3 1/2 min mark it would start to glitch. servo would go straight while in a turn (ended my night in the last race) sometimes not all the time it would kill the sidewinder but then start right back up again.
I was wondering should i pick up a glich buster? or could it just be the way i have my anti wire run. i just looped it back and forth under the reciever.
MX-3 sport i am using for a radio.

Digital servos can draw more current. The Sidewinder has issues supplying current needed by digital servos (@ least my Sidewinder did). After I installed a Spektrum capacitor, all issues with servo glitch / shutdowns stopped. Well worth the $5.00 IMO.
