Don't drop your shifter into 2nd at 70-80. I'm pretty sure the laughing was a hint of sarcasm in shawns post.
You can try it around 50mph for the same effect, and be much safer with far less chance of ruining your transmission.
80mph is about the max for holding 2nd during acccelleration with 2.97 gearing like yours. I've done 85 in 2nd, but it was wound out pretty tight. You have to ask yourself:
"Do I want my engine to nearly redline when I drop to 2nd gear at 80mph?" Because it'll try to.
