For LR & RC, the ones I miss it's not so much a matter of not getting it as it is a matter of picking the worse of 2 good answers, or running out of time.

There are no questions that come down to picking the better of two answers, so it is not possible that you are getting them wrong for the reason of picking the worse of 2 good answers. On LR and RC there is only 1 right answer and four wrong answers. If you want to improve your LR and RC as well, you need to start forcing yourself to truly understand why the answer you chose is incorrect. This will also help with the time issue. Most people run out of time on LR and RC because they spend a lot of their time debating among answer choices. The better your ability to understand why answers are wrong will therefore not only improve your accuracy but your speed as well.I hear students all the time say, "when I look back I realize right away why I got that problem wrong. It was just a stupid mistake." However, in my experience that is not really the case. If it were that easy a problem to understand you probably wouldn't have gotten it wrong in the first place. When I get a question wrong, I really analyze the question. Sometimes I'll spend a good 20-30 minutes with just that one question breaking down the stimulus. I'll literally write down why each wrong answer is wrong (not just think it to myself, but physically write it down), and write why the write answer is correct. Then I'll revisit that question a couple days later. My thought is that if I make a mistake while I am studying, I want to do everything I can to ensure I do not make that mistake again. When I first started studying I missed about 5 LR per section, when I took the real LSAT I missed 1 LR in each section.
Oh absolutely I would spend the bulk of your remaining study time on logic games since clearly there are more points to be had there. Others had already given you some advice on that section, so I just thought I'd also add some words on how to improve on the LR.Good luck, a month may not seem like much, but you still have plenty of time to kill those games.
