Racing tips wanted (FWD)

Ok, so there's this grudge match coming up between me and Zabo.

But, I haven't raced since I had the 86, and that was just a few times to the drag strip.

The car is a 2003 Hyundai Accent. Stock power is 108hp @ 5900, 110tq @ 3000.

Have a custom flowmaster exhaust on it because I wanted a bit more low end torque and a custom short ram intake for the better fuel economy. No tuning done to the ECM.

New tires are coming in next week - 4x 205/50/15, Nitto NeoGens.

NEED ADVICES! MUST WINS!

Thanks.

Oh sure, DON'T give any advice.

Pssh.

I'm pretty sure I'll lose in the drag. I think I have a solid chance on the road course though.

Autocross would probably be no competition.
