You'll never be as fast as a road bike, unless you modify the mtn bike to the point where you can't do the things you've described (jumping curbs..etc.) Since disc brakes have evolved and are now so popular, a lot of people are lacing 650c rims to mtn hubs and using them on their mtn bikes. These bikes are FAST! but you sacrifice durability.
