i recently was bashing my new revo 3.3 around town. i noticed that it started to slow down and wasn't shifting the way it should. so of course i was an idiot and have a tendency to never let go of the throttle. the result was a broken rod and a seized piston at T.D.C. i was wondering if there is a way i can fail-safe my motor from over revving again. I'm about to take it the Glamis and the last ting i need is blow another motor.
thanks for looking!

I don't know of any rev limiters for these engines, so I'd say don't be an idiot and let off the throttle when you notice a problem.

It's all in the break-in procedure my friend. Do it right and she'll last, get impatient and she'll blow in no time...
