or just keep it in like L, 2 and stuff
No, don't do that!

If you keep the car floored it will shift near the redline.

Because you are potentially putting unneeded stress on the transmission. Doing that has the potential to cause very high temperatures and that will kill and automatic transmission.

It would be a horrible way to get it to shift. Just leave it in drive.

If L, D2 and D3 are so horrible for the transmission, why are they even there?

In hilly/mountainous areas (the types where there are truck runaway ramps on the interstate) it can be nice to have 3/2/L.

I've used it before in my old cars... Going through the Poconos or the hills in Vermont.. Much better on the brakes to use engine braking some.
