transmission kickdown

i'm going to be running my 91 cherokee in tuff truck competition. its auto. i want to shift it manually but when i run the revs up then shift, it'll hold in gear and bounce off the rev limiter twice then shift. if i disconnect the kickdown cable, will the trans shift right when i bump the shifter up? i just want a little more control over the gears...the other guys running cherokees in this competition are just putting them in drive and laying the hammer down (its pretty much just a wide open throttle race to the finish). my thoughts are: if i can bump the gears up just before the rev limiter, i can get an extra second on everyone els while theirs bounces once or twice . any info would be appreciated, thanx.
