Is there anything i should check for damage?
Fuel and spark cutoffs have nothing to do with this btw- it was a mechanical over rev. Jamming it into 1st at the top of second will force the engine up to whatever speed that would require, probably a lot more than 8k (where your gauge stops).

Keep an eye on it, listen for anything weird, and change the oil/ trans fluid and look for anything scary in there
