Tiptronic Buttons / Autocross


Vehicle Information: Year: 2001; Engine (type, size, modifications): Stock; Total Mileage: 46000 km;

I am trying to figure out how to use the Tiptronic steering wheel buttons to shift gears during autocross events. Running in manual, starting in 1st, the car automatically upshifts to 2nd at redline, and to 3rd at redline. For slower corners and chicanes I need to get back to 2nd, and for 180 degree turns around a single cone I need 1st.I am having trouble reliably down shifting with the heel of my right hand, and I have to move my hand too far to use my thumb. Any suggestions or is there some way buttons could be added that are activated by thumbs? Left for upshift, right for downshift? I would be happy with just the downshift button!
