Default Jato 3.3 steering/throttle cutting out.

Got my 3.3 Jato today and am pretty impressed with it. One problem Ive been having though is that sometimes the throttle/steering will just die out. I can lift up the back of the truck and it free revs and the tires start to spin up pretty fast. I hit the throttle/steering and after about 15 seconds or so it begins to work again. Sometimes I have to mess with the switch on the truck that turns it on/off which doesnt really work that well eithers. Sometimes when I turn that too the off position it still stays on and I have to move the switch inbetween off/on to get it to shut down. Anyone else had anything like this happen or know whats could be the cause?

Like I said I just got it today, brand new out of a sealed box.

I have a jato 2.5 and the switch on the car won't work some times. Try to pull it back just slightly from the on position. That works on mine if I have it all of the way on it doesn't work. If this is a problem for you the swithc is not expensive and you can just replace it.

Seems to be for some reason mine came with one of the plugs in the reciever that was suppose to be left empty. Unplugged it and seems to be working right so far. Thanks
