Its called Rev Matching. I do it occasionally when traffic starts pissing me off and I have an opening to fly around.

How long have you had your car? After a while you will learn what RPM the engine needs to be at for each gear and speed.

6th down to 4th is still the safest bet for hurried situations.

Edit: Also depends on your rear gears. I wouldnt do 6th down to 3rd with anything other than 3.31's unless you are going 55 or less.
