If I plan on asking for deferred adjudication, does it hurt my chances to plead not guilty and ask for a trial to try a no show.

Yes. You should just go in and say you are not guilty. Jury trial ALWAYS work out for the defendant. NOT
Hire a lawyer. It will be much cheaper in the long run
Representing yourself is generally a bad idea. Hire a traffic lawyer. They can get things done which you would have no hope of doing on your own.
Even lawyers hire traffic ticket lawyer for a reason. No on the DA. Thats your decision on the bench vs Jury.
