Servo interference

I have a Savage and need to ask a quick question.
I run with a stock radio on channel 5 and have a fail safe installed anyways since I installed the Hpi ribbed tune pipe I have receiver flutter it affects both the throtle and steering servos .I also have changed the steering servo to a heavier Jr. It has only started this since the new pipe was installed, Is there a possiblity that the pipe is producing a ferquency that is affect6ing the receiver.

Thanks Steve

I doubt the pipe would be creating any interference. You problem is probably in either your transmitter, receiver, or even the antenna.

-Make sure your antenna wire isn't worn and making contact with the truck's metallic parts

-you might want to open your receiver and ensure there are no liquids or fuel on the circuit board

-last thing to check is maybe your transmitter is freaking out. It happened to one of my HPI radios after 4 or 5 tanks. For some reason, my MT2 was taking off like a bat out of hell spontaneously (full throttle for several minutes before I could catch it, damaged my engine a bit - but it was kinda funny seeing it climb a 4- foot chicken wire fence !!!) I tried putting the radio's crystal in another radio, and that fixed the problem. For some reason, I noticed I was getting a voltage reading on a nearby multimeter when I used that radio - something that didn't happen with my other radios.... Anyhoo, if you have a friend with a similar transmitter, maybe try his with your crystal?

Let me know if it helps!
