It did bounce quite hard when it span its wheels which could make it jump?????
honestly i wouldn't go with thinking its that! it is usually something alot more simple with these cars. the res=ason i spent over 2 months trying to fix mine was because i went round testing and changing all the big complicated parts. go to the scrappers buy a second hand coil and plug it into your car. its a very simple and easy to do test and only cost you 5 quid. if its not that then at least you now have a spare one. test the basic systems first then we will get more complicated. i did think my belt had slipped and the crank sensor was gone and the compression may be fecked and i was completely wrong because i was being fooled buy insufficient sparks. i even got a big bolt of leccy shock when i forgot to turn the ign off and picked up a plug that was earthing on the engine i was unlucky enough that the dizzy had stopped right on that contact. it fecking hurts.
ps if you need spare crank sensors etc for future testing there are 3 of your car in my local scrappers. i can pick up sensor etc for you if you cant.
