no it jumped out of gear and it revved to ######y iirc

oh yer, here we are:
Loud music, not putting it into gear properly, putting my foot down to overtake thinking i was in gear, looked at the rev counter and it was past 8 and still going...long story short i made a mistake lol

i suppose with the head skim and the high lift cam and a worn cam belt some interferance could have been made, just seems a little unusual,

i hope the ring,s are,nt trapped in their groove,s, from the contact (very common on our kart engine,s)

yes, not just power gains tho, there are alot of advantages to having a good engine managment system very expensive tho.
 
Those bent valves are wikid...Ive never seen them like this in the flesh

you're totally welcome mate...looking forward to you getting back up and running (with your new intake method too))

If i'd read this yesterday i'd have been thinking how the hell can you accidently rev it that high, but on the way home today i missed 5th gear and hit over 8500rpm lol. Luckily no apparant damage. (Apart from my ears, they were genuinely hurting from the noise lol)
