• Surfaces may become hot and burn if the car gets wet.
Do not use in water or snow.
• Running the car for long time periods generates high
heat levels. Heat causes wear and tear on the motor.
• To keep heat levels down, let the car cool at least 10
minutes before installing new batteries.
• If the motor runs but your car does not respond to the
transmitter, move the transmitter closer to your car and
try again.
• If someone uses a CB nearby, it might interfere with
control of your car. If this happens, move your car
away from the CB. You cannot operate your car
near devices with transmitters that use the same
frequencies (27 MHz or 49 MHz).
• If the car moves slowly and you just installed a fully
charged battery pack, check the wheel mechanisms for
lint, thread, hair, or dust.
• If your car is stopped by another car or object for arond
6 seconds, it won’t respond to the transmitter for about
10 seconds.
• To prevent injury, children and pets should keep a
distance from the car when it is moving at high speeds.
