    No.

    +1 for over-voltage causing the glow plug to melt like an electrical fuse.

    +1 for resetting all needles, and checking the output voltage from the wand with a volt meter.

    Dude - that's incredible.

    Note to Traxxas engineering - your 3.3 engine is too powerful. Either tone it down, or supply Ti centers in stock product.
