I'm trying to bring a Jato back to life. I have a Jato 2.5 that looks to be in bad condition. The piston top is dark and the carb is sticking. The motor has never run under my ownership. I'm waiting on parts to try and start it. I'm still new to the RC hobby, but I've watched tons of videos and would feel comfortable rebuilding a motor. I'm just not sure if that is the route I should go. I think the simple thing to do is to power up to the 3.3 but is it too much motor? I know, there is no such think as too much power. I've just read of some people having a hard time keeping it on the ground after upgrading to a 3.3. I would appreciate any feedback.
One other thing? How do you guys get to the nut that holds on the carb? I wanted to remove the carb to clean it up while I figure out what to do.
Last thing, is the power up program worth it? It seems like you can buy a 3.3 from amazon for the same price and still keep your engine. I may not be looking at the right engine though.
Thanks for any help.
