You're right "shift" but I couldn't steer, take a pic and shift all at the same time. Thought I should limit my risk...at least a little. No doubt I could have pulled up to +160mph. 5th gear would have put it right in the sweet spot of the power of the LT1.
That was on a dyno drum, guys. This guy is just trying to get a rise outta ppl with objections to individuals exercising their prerogative!!
Here is another pic for all you nonbelievers. It was taken moments before the run. It was on a VERY desolate highway in Idaho. Living in the non-populated West has its advantages. If I had not had the camera phone in my right hand I could have grabbed 5th gear and pull to 160mph+. Maybe I should run a video up to top speed and post that. My mom would not be impressed though...
