Default Vulcan Power Switch Faulty

Hey guys, just got the car last week and took it out for its first run -- I love it so far!

One problem I have is that the power switch is very "soft" we will say. If the switch is in the off position, it is still powered, ie gets control from the transmitter. I opened it up and both wires are soldered onto the switch properly, yet the moving part within the switch seems to be making contact with the wall and/or not disengaging fully. Is there a component part number or company I could order just the switch from to resolder? Also, the switch arm isn't very tall making it hard to turn on and off with the body on.

Also, just to mention, the body is really a tight fit. Hard to access the power switch and the antenna hole should be bigger to allow the antenna (and plastic top) to fit through. Other than that, I love the car and look forward to tons more time on it!

Dear Undead98,

It's great to hear you love the Vulcan!

Sorry for the switch problem.

Please mail a copy of the receipt and the defective switch and we will send you a replacement at no charge.

I will send you a PM with all the information.

My switch collected dirt and sand when running in the dirt. I would blow this out before turning the switch off.
