Anyone replace the ON/OFF switch on the MR-02?

I just discovered that my ON/OFF switch is bad. Has anyone ever replaced the switch with something better/longer lasting?

I would prefer something that I could turn on and off...not a situation where the switch is eliminated altogether, and the car automatically goes on when all batteries are installed.

Thanks!

I never heard of a faulty on off switch, so better ? I dont know.
I think if you take it to your nearest elecronics shop they will get you what you need.

is there not a way to have it hot all the time and you cut it off by just removing the battery?

Yes but then you have to remove the body just to switch it off. Inconvenient

i've never done it myself but i know LOTS of people who have removed the switch. the claim is it's just a weak link in the chain however other responses are any gain is negligible so it's more a personal preference it seems.
