    Unhappy A few noob questions

    Hey guys im new to the forum and nitro rc cars.
    I just bought a used jato 2.5 from a guy i work with and i have a few questions im hoping you can help me with. First is when i try to start it, it fires up quick but i have to leave the starter on it and keep pushing the button for the glow plug or it dies, i have to do this for a minute or so, it acts like it needs to warm up or something. Second is when i finally get it running it dies if i go from idle to wot, as long as i go to wide open throttle slowly its ok. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Replace the glow plug. Secondly, start at factory settings for the carb: 4 turns out on the HSN, 1.75 on the LSN and the gap within the carb is around 1.0mm open when at idle and brake applied.
