    Just getting into crawlers, I bought two used scx10s. I just put a tekin fxr in the second one exact same as the first, except running this one on 3s, instead of 2s. Having problems with glitching, the truck will stop responding, then start jerking forward on its own, sometimes the steering is affected as well, steer good one way, and start glitching the other way. Any help would be great. Thank You:omg:

    You probably need a Glitch Buster. Friends of mine use them in their crawlers. They had the same problem as you. They use the Novak Glitch Buster. After they got the glitch buster. Their Crawlers worked fine. Here is a link for the Glitch Buster.

    What Receivers (RX) are you running, if they are the stock ones the one that is glitching may be dying, try swapping the receivers or binding both to the same controller to eliminate one of them, if its not the controller or RX, then a Glitch Buster may help, but if your getting that kind of interference I would look for the reason on the truck, having two makes Troubleshooting easier as you have a second "test platform" to play with. I kept my Stock RX and Controller after I went to a Flysky GT3C and have had to use it to Troubleshoot a few issues..... Good luck and keep us informed on how this turns out.

    Glitch Buster installed, still having problems. the other truck has the same esc, and receiver, different battery, and steering servo. Is it worth trying a different servo, it happens the most when full turn to right.
