To make sure I get it right................

so, what you meant is to think as a 2/2 timing, that is only 2 "down beat" in the 4/4 bar.
and playing the quavers as if they are 16th?

Also, in this type of speed, just play "straight's".

Yes, except that if you are thinking of the quavers as semiquavers, it would be more like 2/4 than 2/2.

I'm talking about Giant Steps type tempos here.
