Exclamation something slipping or normal?

Just got a '05 SS with 95k miles. Is it normal when going hard up through the gears to see the RPMs "slip"? I've been told the engine needs RPM to build boost, hence the "slipping". BS or normal operation?

ex. shift into second, wide open thr***le, RPM climb to 4,000 then slowly drop to 3,000 then climb back to 5,000 normally* then shift into third. repeat sequence each gear.

*I'm using "normally" to indicate when I feel the car is pulling hard versus "slipping".

Thanks and let me know.

yeah, sounds like your clutch disc is worn and needs replacement.
