Below are a couple of pics of the fix Johnny is describing. In my 12th scale car I used a piece silicone fuel tubing at the top and bottom to secure the antenna wire. In my sedan I used a piece of fuel tubing at the bottom and an antenna cap at the top.
I was running my antenna wire all the way up the rollover mast, and a few weeks ago my car shut off after I hit a dot and the antenna/mast rubbed on the carpet. I wound the wire around the base of the mast, and I have not had a problem since.
If your ride-height is too low and your chassis is rubbing the carpet a lot the static generated will cause the receiver to shut off, even if you wrap the antenna around the base of the antenna. I had that happen to me once also.
