You could ice the SC and for drag if you will add a roll cage you should cut the hood down about 3 in less drag and less over all weight

You totally lost me on half that. I don't need a rollcage.
Icing the SC is ridiculous, as by the time I idle to the start line in that heat, I'm hosed, especially by the time I hit the traps. Look at my sig pic. See that funny duct? I'm also running water/methanol injection, and will be running a form of intercooler by then.

Drag isn't a problem, either.

I've been 156 already. And over 140 several times.
