    newbie. jato 2.5 r wont stay running without a glow plug warmer

    hey guys im new to nitro i have a jato with a 2.5r and the only way i can keep it running is if i keep the glow warmer on it. iv tried warming the glow plug and putting the blue wire for the ez start back on but it will only run if i keep my finger on the ez start button. as i said i am new to nitro so any input will be helpful. thanks

    Put the car on a shoe box or something, so the wheels are off the ground.

    Start it, and hold the throttle at about 30%, and remove the EZ start. Is it working?

    I'd say you just need to tune it 10x better.
