Adventure force night racer remote controlled car was purchased from Walmart for my nephew for Christmas. On Christmas Day we put batteries into the device and after 2 hours of operation the remote control began to operate intermittently. We put the car up and got it out today. I put fresh AA batteries in the remote first and then proceeded to do the same with the car. While I was putting batteries in the car my nephew had the remote and was pushing buttons. Next he screams it’s getting hot and smoke starts coming out of the remote control. I quickly took the batteries out of the remote control which were to hot to touch. My nephew wasn’t burned badly but did have a red mark. I took the remote control apart and it appears that the red l.e.d. power indicator or the power switch on the remote is the cause of the short circuit. I will be returning this car to Walmart stores after I hear a response from this notice. This product was made in China and I have several pictures of this product. The item number on the remote is: 180002A. FCC ID: 2AHUVNQT0001. Other numbers are it’s a 2.4GHz and NQ-8201. On the car itself the numbers are: item number 180002A, 2.4GHz, NQ-8201. On the box the brand name is Adventure Force night racer and it has the item number of NQ-8201 stamped on it as well as distributed by Walmart. The instruction Manuel # 9318000, radio controlled buggy night racer, this Manuel covers model numbers 180000A, 180001A, and 180002A. This car had less than 2.5 hours of use on it. I feel this product could have started a fire and it burnt my nephews hand. I also placed a phone call into your agency regarding this issue.
