I went to an autocross this weekend. On one of my runs, I went into a corner a bit too hot and spun the car.. as the car spun out, I think i stalled it and as the car spun backwards, it bump started the engine in reverse! :ugh: Having my helmet on, I couldn't hear what was going on and didn't realize what had happened. I had the clutch in, put it into first and started going backwards.. WTF! took it out of gear, put it back in first and went backwards again and this time stalled it. Took a bit to get it restarted, but it ran fine afterwards. I figgure it can't be good to have the engine running in reverse like that. I did get it on video, and should post it later tonight. You can definitely hear the engine misfiring badly when it was running backwards. Truly some crazy stuff! Anyone ever have this happen to them??
