My 27 Mhz ZipZap stutters as well but I think it's due to electrical interference with a cordless phone or a baby monitor.

I took my controller apart and my car apart to see if it had the cripple cap but I didn't see it in my ZipZap. My Bit Char-g did have both the caps that causes the range issue and when I removed them, my range was much better.

The ZZ transmitter does not have a crip cap but I have noticed many of them do have crappy range. I tried a transmitter from a newer ZZ on the same car (also 27mhz obviously) and got way more range. Even better, I put a longer telescoping antena and got about 5 - 6 more feet. So see if RS will exchange it for you since it may have been a design flaw in certain version of the X-mitter.
