If you're risking losing $500 on a single race you want to get that thing tuned perfectly beforehand.

Turn up at least an hour early and practice, set the needles, shocks,shift point, everything. Also lighten it as much as possible, take everything off which you won't need. Running a greater nitro % will also give you some extra speed, just be sure not to kill your engine in the process - it won't help if you get off to a flying start and then the con-rod goes through the side of the crankcase.
