Well, you can, but since the ATX shift points are "automatically" adjusted to rather high RPM when you do WOT, I sincerely doubt whether you would get any more acceleration manually shifting vs. a simple "pedal to the metal."

Check out the shift points under WOT and compare to when you would shift manually. Max RPM is not the best shift point, in most cases, for maximum acceleration.
