Lash caps on the LPE 113 heads with 1.6:1 RR's.

Thats like saying piston rings will wear out if you drive it too much.

you either broke it or you didnt. And it sounds like you didnt.
eh.. A small crack in a rod can window the block two weeks from now .

Or a valve spring that has lost it's tension from an overrev can cause valve float the next race and cause piston to valve contact destroying a motor.

To be fair, i did put a new top end on it at some point.

but otherwise ran those same springs for another 30k on that 350 rwhp hotcam combo (what i had at time of over rev)
