AMBER: unstable MD velocities

Dear Amber users

I have created a lipid chain bound to 2 carbohydrate moieties using gaff
parameters. The partial charges were generated using a gaussian/resp
procedure.

The problem is this:

Dynamics runs of the molecule (in gas phase and igb=1) rapidly give rise to
huge velocities that quickly cause the system to crash. The crash can only
be avoided by resetting the velocities after every dynamics cycle.

I have tried varying the ntt setting but this has not helped. I presume that
there must be some parameter conflict within my molecule?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

I have included my dynamics input file and the parm and crd files.

Many thanks
