Lightbulb Hey-hey


Firstly, welcome to the forums. It's refreshing to see a first posting that is so informative! Good catch there, I look forward to more of your postings..

I'll keep that in mind. I don't experience any twitching with any of my Mini-Z's.
But, should they start... I'll follow your lead

Assuming it is a dust/dirt issue maybe we could get some input from other drivers.

We need input from both "twitchers" and "non-twitchers".

Consider these questions:

1) Do you have the "twitch" problem (defined as: car at rest, close to Tx, steering twitches up to 25% of full servo throw, transient). Are you sure the electronics are not fried?

2) What track surface do you run on? Concrete, carpet, wood, tar paper etc.

3) Is it dusty/dirty? Indoors or out? Do you see a film of dust on the car at the end of a session?

4) How long have you run the car (approx. hours).

5) For those with "twitch" problems: Did it start some time after you started running the car or right away?

Perhaps we can spot a pattern...
