If the servos only twitch when the engine is running getting new servos won't help you at all.

What kind of receiver are you running? Glitching like that is typically caused by two pieces of metal rubbing together from vibrations. I would go through the whole car and find anywhere that two pieces of metal could rub and fix it so there's no metal on metal rubbing.

If you're insisting on new servos, those are standard size servos. I wouldn't bet too much on servos fixing the issue though.

well the throttle and steering twitch,im replacing the electronics as i think the system is outdated,i have a new transmitter and receiver that dont use crystals,the old system uses crystals and i have a funny feeling the receiver is broke,i checked my crystals they are a matching pair.like if i start the car it revs up as high as it can,so i havta jump in and cut the engine off to stop it from blowing,and its the servo forcing the throttle to open fully with random twitches,i dont want it to blow my engine as its in good order and very reliable.

Have you tried the current servos with the new 2.4ghz system yet? If not, do that first. Servos don't glitch on their own, they just react to what the receiver is telling them to do.

the car is probably 1/10 scale

the engine is most likely .12 or .15

if you can remove the engine, it should tell you

You can plug the battery into any unused servo channel on the receiver.
