Lean the LSN and HSN. Read the tuning bible at the top of the page.

I had that "problem" with mine a while back.

1) Your engine isn't up to peak performance until you've got a gallon or so fuel through it.

2) The stock tires may not be gripping on the surface you're running on. Jaco makes some supposedly good foam tires, but I haven't tried them.

3) Check your differential. Mine came from the factory with no diff fluid in it, just some grease. After I put 10k diff fluid in it, it took off better (at the expense of turning traction).

Get your engine (further broken in, and tuned) and traction (differential, if needed) taken care of first.

If it still isn't wheelie-ing, do one or the other with the clutchbell/spur. Going down on your clutchbell has the same effect as going up on the spur gear.

Stiffen the rear shocks as much as possible. You will notice right above the spring there will be a collar. Screw that down to make the spring tighter. Your car may not handle as well but you will be doing wheeliees

I would disagree the jato has a lot of power for that small truck i would say tighten the slipper clutch a little....
