With the set up being close, already, add rear percentage by placing some ballast in the rear. Attaching it higher in the chassis will help promote body roll and, consequently, sidebite. Another effective adjustment is moving the rear tires leftward of the car's centerline with wheel backspacing. That will tighten her up.

One more thing, back off the rear stagger that worked during the tackier heat race. It will make you loose on dry slick in the middle of the corner, right where you want to star picking up the throttle.
