  1. Thanks for the input Dan - Honestly I am somewhat at ease at the moment but you are absolutley right in that it is by far the worse type of overrev. I know someone that did it in an M5 and it practically through the engine out the car -needless to say they had to drop a whole new unit into it. I was in the passenger seat but I saw an honest 8400-8500 rpm.
