Typically, if you loosen the diff while staying within the window of safe diff operation, it will gain a little traction on that end of the car. Keep in mind that this is a tuning option to FINE tune the car. Usually the rear. If you are looking for a lot more rear traction, set the rear diff to the correct setting and look elsewhere for traction.

Default Diff settings?

For the most part, A tighter diff means less grip at that end of the Car.

Tighten the Front Diff and you will push a little in the Front. Need to loosen up the Rear, tighten up the Rear Diff.

Most Cars will run both Diffs equal or have the Front Diff slightly tighter.
