Can the truck be tested or powered on without a remote?

We bought a used truck at a thrift store, and it didn't include a remote. Before we invest in a replacement of the remote, we'd like to test the actual truck to make sure it works. Is there any way to test the vehicle without a remote, such as turn on the motor?

Yeah, you could theoretically wire up some batteries to the motor if you can access the main circuit board and see in it does anything. While I don't own this this thing personally and never tried this, I don't see what could go wrong. Just be sure to wire the batteries/ power source up properly and avoid applying too much power.
