The best option would be to re-gear the transmission. Check with RPM Transmissions or Tick Performance to see if they have that option. They both specialize in building hi-perf manual transmissions. At 700 rwhp I hope you're not running regular street tires; but running a taller rear tire could help as well. You would be need to recalibrate the speedo which is not that hard with tuning software.
