Thanks Joe for the reminder
No I am not positive that the red botton is igntion on/off...but it still could be turning the key on may only give you power to the starter, and not turn the ignition on. Or does it have reverse?
Also some of these will come with a governor for younger kids to keep the speed down..it is also possible thats what the red is for. Or it could be a high/low for the transmission.
