Advice for Running at the Track?

Well, we have a camera man and several guys that wanna run on test/tune day at Rock Falls on October 9 so the date is set! Ok, so I am thinking I will start the Mickeys at 26 psi and possibly work down in small increments. I need to find the sweet spot for flashing the 3800 stall which I may test out in a few days at an undisclosed location. I'm ditching the spare tire, jack, and maybe even the rubber floor mats. I'll probably remove the passenger side headlight considering the air box has been drilled. Can anyone think of anything else or give me any advice before or while I am sitting at the tree?

I am going to be very honest with ya. I will not be happy with 14s.
