Not with SolrCloud.  If you manage all your shards and replicas yourself 
and use "manual" distributed search, then you can do what you're trying 
to do.  You lose a *LOT* of automation that SolrCloud handles for you if 
you follow this route, though.

I can't find an existing feature request issue for doing this with 
SolrCloud.  It's a good idea, just not possible currently.
