Autocross my wagon agian large question

i autu crossed my wagon again and u can see im doign pretty good in an AUTOMATIC stock wagon
IM 4th in this pic for yesterdays event

i keep getting 4th place or so in novice i wanna move to H stock now sense im almost always beating the mini and tiburan gt around here but i have a HUGE PROBLEM the automatic SUCKS! so bad that i have to leave it locked in 1st the whole run to even have a chances and im hitting rev limiter ALOT but if i shift to second the bottom end of this car sucks so bad i lose more speed then gain and the auto wont shift back down if i punch it ......

ideas better TIRES FIRST sense im on tires from 2008

um sway bars and a cat back should still leave me in H stock here

and the 205 50 15 instead of 205 60 15 should lower the gearing a bit to help me go thru 2nd faster

last is for tom ! would a tune be able to wake my tranny and the bottom end alot ? what mods would be best for bottom end cat back or cams ? with a tune any advice will be appreciated

You ought to post this in the autocross section, you will get more eyes from those who know the answer most likely. I even see a thread over there now about the same thing, though with manual guys, so it looks like a problem for both trans.
