We had a local guy that had a 60 - 62 Vette with a small cube motor that rev'd that high a couple of decades ago.

It had a heavy flywheel on it , when the car launched it jumped off the line.

The high pitch whine of the engine at such high RPM was almost ear perching.

I've seen this car make a run at National Trail, and yes it revs. It'll give you goosebumps!

Edit: Or maybe it was Norwalk, geeesh- CRS is creeping in.

I remember at our local drag strip in the early sixties there was a 61 Vette with a very hot SBC. I never heard what RPM he came off the line, but we used to accuse him of welding the lower end together. His name was Sam Cunningham and he is the 1963 NHRA National Championship Drags CM/SP record holder.

Car makes 2.4 HP per cubic inch. (680 hp). Seems to be very competitive. Patterson Racing also builds a lot of small cube engines for NHRA SS/M (Super Stock/Modified) class. They're a trip to watch and hear. Sportsman car builders don't get enough press about how they can get cars to perform, IMHO.

My instructor in tech college did this same thing in the 60`s in a 55 chevy. He did it with a 283 punched out to a 301. He said he would rev it to around 10 grand and side step the clutch. and in his own words "If it didn`t break, you went fast!" he also said "I never lost unless it broke, and it broke alot. But when it didn`t I never lost" He showed me some trophy`s and pictures.
He also showed me a room with all kinds of broke parts. Exploded clutches, 3 speed manual transmissions that were grenaded, twisted in half drive shafts, snapped axles, busted bellhousings. He said the worst he could remember was the time he had it on the line getting ready to side step the clutch when he heard what sounded like a explosion. The harmonic balancer had came off due to it being the press on type and hit the asphalt, placing a hole in the track which got him promptly evicted lol.
The last thing he mentioned to me about it was something like "I think back on those days now and it`s amazing I didn`t get killed"
