Default "slap shifting"

in my car ive been playing around with the shifter, treating it like an old hurst shifter more or less , going from a dead stop in 1st, then shifting to second, etc. I was wondering if there is a part out there that will allow me to slap the shifter harder, without going to a higher gear untill its neccesary....
if you know what i mean, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Not that I know of, but if you keep treating it like that your going to be the next member of the new tranny club.

in my bmw, you can press a button next to the automatic shifter which allows somewhat of a "tiptronic" mode, doing what i said, yes, using as somewhat of a manual transmssion 1----shift-----2----shift----3----shift etc, thats all.

You aren't making it any faster, or anything.

You can only loosen the shifter, or bust the tranny. Ratchet shifters can be made to work though, but again, not much of an improvement if any, on a stock car.
