    Yeah, higher RPM's definitely cause the tensioner to fail. In the video that I posted about Skunk2's analysis of the OEM Tensioner, the load spring sucks and the teeth for the piston in the tensioner are short compared to the larger teeth in Skunk2's tensioner. That leaves room for the teeth to skip in tensioner causing it to smack back in the place which relieves tension on the chain which means it may skip a tooth or 2 while the cams are spinning and there is not as much tension. It all happens in a split second or so, but it happens!
