Default Problem with Kyosho LAV

I have a Kyosho LAV, yknow the Japanese military vehicle which is (I guess) just a mini Inferno with a different body.

My model worked great for the first 30mins. But now when I start it, it judders into driving. Sometimes it just judders and gathers no momentum. The weird thing is, it only does this on the floor but when I hold it in my hands for the wheels to move freely, it works normally.

It works normally when I accelerate slowly or using the trim to move, but full throttle it judders.

Any ideas whats doing it? If it something easy to fix then I will, but otherwise I'll send it back. The thing came missing half it's spares and a hole in the box too.

Thanks in advance guys.

- The batteries are new
- I turn the transmitter on first

So it's nothing to do with those.

I spoke to the retailer and they said that the speed control may need reprogramming. Though I can't find it listed in the parts manual
