once you get comfortable,you should play with the shift rpm a little...sounded like 3rd gear was a little short, but its always hard to tell cuz the car sounds different after it goes past the camera

a 1.8 should be pretty easy on radials..listen to the launch in your vid..you have to keep those rpms down to keep the street tires from blowing off...with the drag tires you can keep your foot in the go pedal and it should improve easily with no effort

congrats btw
