Well, yeah. We'll skip the usual sermon about being a hazard to others on the road, etc., and pretend it'* just you and the other guy on, I dunno, a dragstrip or something. Simply stomping on the pedal is going to trigger your traction control to prevent wheelspin if you don't disarm that first, so that'll have your ABS pump working overtime.
Once that'* switched off, you're free to feed the horses, but remember that the other guy isn't going to pay for your new transmission. In short, you break it; you buy it, sport. Oh, hey, you already bought it. Okay, then, you get to buy it all over again, whatever doesn't survive your little race.
Having said all that, I find I get the best performance out of my bone-stock '93 SSEi by waiting until it upshifts to second, _then_ rolling on the supercharger. Leaning on it in first gear seems be mainly all noise, little action; second gear has a better ratio and the supercharger provides the necessary oomph to take advantage of that.
