Default redcat 1\8 super crawler problem

i have a redcat 1/8 super crawler, and whats happening is when i drive it for one or two minutes it will stop dead in its tracks and the speed control beeps while the light flashes. i was told might be battery, so i put a new 7.2v tenergy 3300mah 6 cell and i have the exact same problem. any help would be appreciated. im not sure if it could be the receiver or transmitter or speeed control and not sure of what steps to take to determine which it could be.

thanks

Have a look in your user's manual to see the led blinking codes

i actually figured it out...it was the code saying there was no connection between controller and rc. so i opened controller and found the wire from the antenna to the circuit board was loose at the solder. so i re soldered it and everything works great. thanks for the suggestion though
