    You might also take a closer look at your battery pack/holder in the truck. I found on one of ours that it wasn't the switch, it was that the battery holder (cheap thin plastic) was torn on one end...

    It's the dual stage. Nice price on that chassis! I'm going to have to get over my aversion to Ebay. Actually, it's an aversion to paypal!
