TRANMISION QUESTION.. REGARDING THE B16A CABLE TRANNY

1916 Honda Civic

Hi guys. I currently own a 89 civic hatch with a 98 GSR motor with b16a (cable tranny). Jus wondering what happens when say. U go into first gear and u go over the limited speed. Like u take 1st gear to 60-70km/hr when it can really only hit 50km/h. I did that one time and as I hit over 60km/h at 7000rpm. I heard this loud bang and the car shook. After wards. My foot was still on the gas. But I couldn't go any faster than 60km/h. I went into 2nd and the car drove normally. I don't think I damaged my 1st gear because when I stopped on the side of the road. And tried starting in 1st again it was still alrite. I jus wanna ask if anyone knows what happens if u take a gear over its desired speed. (I know there's the chance of your engine blowing up taking it to high rpms) but would it damage your gears in a way too. Thanks
