Quick Shifting vs. Powershifting
BEFORE YOU COMMENT :
-The purpose of this video is only to show the difference between quick
shifting and powershifting.
-Constructive comments are welcome.
-Stop whining about the shape of the transmission. I don't drive like that
all day everyday, and it still shifts like butter (must be done properly
-Whining about the position of my hand on the steering wheel is also
irrelevant. I usually drive with both hands on it, but during the making
of the video I happened to let one hand on the shifter because I felt like
it (multiple shifts on a short time).
-Thanks for watching and let the VTEC kick in, yo !
Quick lifted shifts vs full throttle powershifts. Powershifting means that
you never leave your foot off the gas while shifting. Also added some rev
matching near the end.
A 1/4 mile ride in Joel Nystroms Hemi 4 speed GTX
Mike Kamm sat in the back seat of my 67 Plymouth GTX, an original 30,000
mile Hemi 4 speed car, while I carefully baby it down Norwalks 1/4 mile
dragstrip. This pass was run on original style G70-14 bias ply tires, so
there was tire spin. Thats why I had to back pedal a little in 1st and the
shift light never went off in 2nd. I had the light set to come on at 6500
rpm, but wasn't shifting untill 7000. This was a mid 11 second pass at
about 124 mph.
Check it out from behind the car:

a ride in a 1971 426 hemi charger last426
This is my pride and joy. The last year of the 426 hemi. I am the second
owner and, as the movie will embarrassingly show, I treat this car like a
cupcake. It is grandma's hemi with column shift 727. I asked why the
original owner ordered it with that and he said, "just to save money." The
car cost about 5,000 with about 1,000 of that the engine and "required"
options. It is absolutely stock and now even has 14 x 6 black wheels on
it. Only 47,000 miles on this beauty and you can see more of it at
Here is a video of the engine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tl2e1NIcBFs
and yes, the car weighs around 4,100 pounds.
8,000RPM Shifting My 540 Bigblock Corvette
Watch the tach. 1st to 2nd shift is at 8,000RPM. 2nd to 3rd is at 7,500.
And some people say a bigblock won't rev. This is a 700+hp 540CID Merlin
block Chevy engine.
I've opened an online store where you can get 540Merlin T-shirts and other
great stuff! This is the only source in the world for 540Merlin stuff.
