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. http://www.cafepress.com/540Merlin 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.

Evo 9000 rpm 2nd 3rd gear redline
This is my 2003 evo 8. Im just doing a 2nd 3rd gear pull. As said, I had the camera attached to my left hand thats why I'm shifting so slow. Built by Trevtec. I'm actually redlining at 9,200rpm. It's about 40mph in 2nd gear 5,000rpm. And 105 in 3rd at 9,200rpm.
