Default lost signal... what happened?

a buddy and I were parking lot romping my rc10gt and everything was going great when suddenly the receiver and the truck lost signal with each other... it crashed and didnt break anything haha when we walked up to the truck it was still running but still no signal... i turned off the receiver and turned it back on. I unplugged the batteries from the back of the truck and wiggled the switch on the truck and still nothing.... does anyone have any ideas what it could be?? I really dont want to take it back to the hobby shop as they bend people over to even look at the damn things... any advice would be greatly appreciated Thanks!!!!!!

Are the batteries dead? Check the crystal in the radio and receiver, did the antenna wire get cut or brake?

hahaha welllllll the problem is solved!!!! the one battery on the back of the truck was not in the holder all the way.... must have rattled out or something. BEAUTIFUL!!! does anyone know if the rc10gts have a battery box holder set up?? I bought this truck used and Ihave had the batteries taped in... zip tied... and well Iwish there were an easier way to hold them into the truck.

Like the word or not, according to Merriam Webster its a real word.

Definition of ROMP

1: to run or play in a lively, carefree, or boisterous manner
2: to move or proceed in a brisk, easy, or playful manner
3: to win a contest easily

Examples of ROMP

1. The kids were romping in the yard.
2. the kids romped on the lawn until dinner was ready
