For LR I advise you to go slower. Since timing isn't an issue for you that extra 5 seconds you take on each question to read slowly and more carefully might be the difference in you taking a 50/50 guess and clearly seeing an answer.

What should I do for extra practice besides PT's, just do timed sections?

Review... review review review. If the answers are obvious the second time around, figure out exactly why you're going for the wrong answers the first time.

i hope to god there is a way for you to get to 168/169 since i'm in a very similar position with my mode score being 164.

recognizing which one is right immediately doesn't help. during your review try to deconstruct the answer choice and note every little nuance (subtle shifts in scope, relevance, etc.). afterwards, compare the two and if you go through that process enough it will become second nature during an actual timed session. i really feel that this is the key to doing well on LR at your stage.

once i started doing this i performed much better on LR, at most around 3-5 wrong. two of those are almost always questions that i don't get to which i'm hoping won't be a problem with enough timed sessions.

just keep workin on it man, don't get discouraged.

edit: also, try doing untimed sections as well. most people on tls will tell you that your priority should be accuracy first, speed afterwards.
