No offense intended but do you actually own an SMG car? The problem you are complaining about does not exist in the real world. I set mine on S5 and have not changed it out of that mode in over 2 years. You simple use the gas to modulate shift speeds. Problems is already solved.

No need to re-invent the wheel here.
