Check the throttle pivot bushing is not worn. This can cause a problem with the TSS and be the cause for erratic ignition problems.

You might want to disconnect your TSS and see if that changes things.

You should check your reeds! A back fire can break the reeds and then it will keep doing it and run like crap!

its running better then ever now, it ended up being the kill switch going bad, but i replaced the bushings on the throttle, that wast it, it wasn't the servo motor for the APV's, we adjusted the cables, the new track grips alot better. and everything seems the be good.
Thanks for all of your help.
