Can this router be slowed down?

I noticed the recommended RPMs for even small router bits are lower than 27000 rpm

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked good for a few months then just STOPPED working Router worked great for a few months then just quit in the middle of a job and wouldn't turn back on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best price for this product Good power for size of router. Comfortable for one hand use. Out of box, depth gage tends to slip when routing but tension can be adjusted with set screw. Spindle locks in multiple positions which helps when changing bits. Bought three of these and feel that they were well worth the price.
