Losi Short Course Truck 27mhz AM Range

I use to race 1/10th R/C cars back in the late 80's early 90's.
Have not had any cars for a long, long time.
Decided to pick up a used Team Losi 1/24 Micro Short Course Truck. Will mostly just sit on the shelf as a display but could see myself getting it out a few times a year to play around with.
I was a little discouraged with the range I was getting. What is the normal range for the 27mhz AM Losi radio?
I was getting around 20' and it would drop out. I was hoping for better then that.... or does it sound like this one has a problem?

I still have yet to open the chassis and see if the antenna is disconnected. I'll check that when I tear it down to clean and lube it.
