its all a bit of a mystery - the dropped valve has all the signs of a mis-shift overrev. I do not recall any overrev's during the event we were in. plus i know my 7200 rpm rotor button rev limiter works.
It's not the overrev on the up-shift that kills a motor, it's the over-rev on a downshift that will toast it. And there isn't a rotor-button around that will protect against that.
