HELP engine won't start?

I have just brought an el xr6 (my little hatch back), just about got it on the road, and then it stuffs up :(
the other day i started it up gave it a quick rev up to 6000 rpm by accident, as the revs went down it just died and now it's not starting, its got no spark, i think it might be the alarm system, i have checked the earth in the boot, fuses in the engine bay and in side the car and they are all ok, the fuel pump works, it cranks over fine, is there anything else that could be preventing spark?

Coil lead could be shorting across the dipstick too?
You've got to watch those plugs on the back of the coils, often the pins inside will actually slide back and not make contact, even though the plug's on....
