    A couple of months ago someone posted pictures of an RSX where the driver missed a shift and blew the motor. The pistons looked like baked potatoes. I tried the search button but it's not working if anyone knows which forum the post was in please let me know. Thanks

    I found what you were talking about, the pics were just little red X's though.

    here

    Also found a video of an RSX Mis-shifting, it's probably a repost, but kind of funny.

    I remember the original potato pistons thread :) After some searching I can only find one remaining picture from it:

    If I recall correctly, after doing the math we determined the motor revved to over 16k before exploding.

    I don't think that video is from that picture, it doesn't sound like he blew anything, and seems like someone posted that a couple weeks ago, and said it was fine.

    the vid is a different RSX, but a mis-shift. I found it and thought it was funny and relavent (sp?) to the topic.

    Do you have any other pics of the engine?

    You beat me to it =)

    bigger CC bikes tend to have a lower redline then the smaller CC bikes

    the smaller the motor the higher it has to rev to make power my 600CC bike goes to 14,700RPM

    my .12 engine on my RC car goes to about 30K RPM =) makes almost 1HP some of the .12 race engines put out 1.5HP and spin up to 35K+ RPM

    I miss using my RC cars =)
