I'm sorry to tell you that you cannot do that. If that were possible people would just take the test twice. First time focusing on math and second time focusing on verbal to get a great overall aggregate score. I mean technically you can... But I hope you'll have a good explanation in your application as to why you received a 0 out of 800 on verbal and a 0 for your writing...

Not really
the universities i'm applying to , are only interested in the quantitative section . So, I want to focus on the quant as much as possible

I'm an engineer and I know engineering grad school only care about the Quantitative section... so I took the exam with little prep since I'm already good in quant and just didn't bother studying for the verbal... But I'm pretty sure the best engineering schools require a verbal of at least 430 just to make sure you know just enough english lol... Just take the verbal without using too much brain power and you'll be fine by the time the math section comes around...

As @getienne has pointed out, a very high score in quants may offset a score in verbal, but will raise question marks.
Also, your total score matters more than you might think, because that plays a big part in the rankings. Given a choice of two similar candidates, the school might select the candidate with the higher total score even if the other has a higher quants score.

I guess what I'm trying to say is don't discount the impact of under performing on the verbal portion. Take several practice CATs so that you are able to concentrate right through the test (4 hours).
