Hi Florian

I'm using the scriptaculous effects class SUEffect to achieve what you 
describe and I can get it working pretty fast by taking the effect duration 
down to 0.1 seconds (I also reduce fps to 10 for good measure but I don't 
think it's too significant).  Try the following...

html anchor
    onClick: (html effect
	        duration: 0.1;
		fps: 10;
		id: ('nameOfDivToToggle');
		perform: #toggleAppear.);
    with: 'Toggle'.
