Jake has made some valid recommendations. If you can locate the pro compound tires they will give you more grip over all and are faster than the d compound. What are you using for traction compound? Every form of r/c depends on tires so if you can start with that it will be a huge benefit. While a gear diff may help in the front I would at least run the front 1.0 bar and consider the following:
More front camber
More front caster (no more than 6 degrees)
Less rear tow (two should be min)
Lighter gear diff oil with only two gears
Metal gears in the diff
I have run a front gear diff over and over on asphalt and carpet and it just depends on the day if I like it or it's faster. Not a bad tool to have in the box but not really a first pick of mine.
My normal check list is as follows when making adjustments;
I'm sure other have their order but this has worked best for me.
