Narrative:Several pilot-rated ground witnesses reported that on the downwind takeoff ground run the airplane engine never developed full power and never lifted off. The pilot applied the brakes when the airplane was about 360 feet from the departure end of the runway, but he was unable to stop the airplane on the runway or the 84-ft level, gravel stopway. The airplane overran the departure end of the runway and went down the 40-degree sloping terrain and exploded. The entire airplane was incinerated. The engine examination showed that the No. 1 cylinder boss was cracked and the interior of its valve cover contained two impact marks. Examination of the cylinder and its components showed no evidence of any preexisting malfunctions or failures. CAUSE: a partial loss of engine power for undetermined reasons, and the pilot's failure to abort the takeoff in a timely manner. The tailwind was a factor.
