Default Killed a brand new Glow Plug in 2 minutes

I just killed a BRAND NEW HPI R5 Glow plug in 2 minutes..
Started the car and drove for 2 minutes.. Engine died so I tried restarting, no luck
Checked the Glow plug, its BLACK/OILY and won't glow...

What could be the reason for this?
Can you recommend a GOOD/BETTER Glow Plug than HPI R5?

Thank you!

I would shim the head first, and maybe run it a bit richer with whatever plug you use.

Shim, add a head gasket to lower the compression.

What fuel, engine?

Buzz.

Today i turned my car over and a lot of BLACK LIQUID came out of exhaust.
Also when I hit the throttle (FULL) on my remote, it felt like the car wasn't even revving and about to CHOKE
What does that mean?
