the best thing you can do for yourself, your car & your wallet is quit thinking & spending money & just get to the track & get some experiance.
the first tip is a simple one, why are you taking so much time going around the water box & backing up? what do you think that is doing to your ait's?
there is absolutely no reason for it, you should have been right up there with the ls car, ready to go, hell he wasn't very fast to the line either, you could have beat him up there.
look at the video you posted again & think about how much time you could have saved yourself just in that short video, time = heat in a touchy application like yours.
my second tip would be if you must spend money, spend it on a cowl hood to get some heat out & some decent wheels & tires, keep the m/t's for street use.
aside from that, like I said above, get some track time, then make a decision.
