Default where to put my 400 dollars ?

Trying to figure out where to spend my 400 dollars before i take it to the track. alright rundown of my car its a SI camaro with

ss4000 built tranny
3.73 gears
ls6 intake ported TB
98mm lid/85mm maf
UD pully
Sux2bu ramair
Headers/TSP x-pipe
Chromoly SFCs
cheapo LCAs and PHB
Chromoly tubular k member and solid mts.
Weight reduction
i have money to get my tune with an extera 400 to spend...

Im thinking Strange SA shocks and 275lb springs

or lightweight battery and spend the other 300 or something else ? give me some opinions i think it should go 11s but i want some insurance !

Do you have drag tires?
A used nitrous kit can be had for 400 ish.
The battery idea is a good one and maybe keep the $300 just in case!?

I'd leave the kit on the car and put it on a pushbutton, but that's me.

For a grudge race, having a little nitrous as a backup is never a bad idea, especially on the street. The suspension is a good choice for some weight transfer though.

A good set of shock would help, It helped me. And move you battery to the back to help weight transfer, and remove the front & rear bumper supports ans door bars.

I say buy some relocation brackets for your LCAs and get yourself some Strange rear shocks.
