• Running your vehicle continuously for long periods of time generates
high heat levels. Heat causes wear and tear on the motor. To help
keep heat levels down, when your vehicle’s battery pack runs down,
let the vehicle cool at least 10 minutes before installing a new or newly
charged battery pack.
• If someone uses a CB radio nearby, it might interfere with control of
the vehicle. If this happens, move the car away from the a rea where
the CB is being operated.
• You cannot operate your vehicle near devices with transmitters that
use the same frequency as your’s (27 MHz or 49 MHz). Check this
product’s box to see which frequency your vehicle uses.

check the wheel mechanisms for lint, threads, hair, or dust.
