Well Paul........Yeah it Actually Does INDEED have something to Do with the Over Rev. that He Performed........
And the reason Why, is because at that Point (No Fuel, or Spark) It is Called a "COLD Over Rev.".....Therefore the Chances of Catastrophic Engine Failure IS Expediently Reduced!.....Compared to an Over Rev. that happens with the Engine actually Combusting!......
It is akin to Missing a Gear (But as I Stated, His Clutch most likely was the Mechanical Part that took the Most Damage.......
