I would be concerned about the clutch, if it's stock... ditch the Hypertec for custom tunes, I recomend that one way or the other. I personally like DP Tuner (I have them in both my trucks, and will get one for the Excursion when I can talk the wife into it), but others think highly of TS style 6 pos chips with tunes buy Tony Wildman, Beans, PHP, and more... do some research, make some phone calls, and go with the one who you are most comforable with. DP's are nice, you arn't limited to just 6 tunes.
As for tires, it's going to depend on the track, an agressive all-terrain or closely-spaced tread pattern mud terrain radial seems popular at the local county fair where I work at the track for the truck pulls... so no personal experiance, but I know what I see alot of.
