Or JConcepts Double Dee's front and rear in green compound. The GT2s respond very well to small pin tires front and rear on almost every kind of dirt.

+1 or+2 or +3 or whatever number we're on with the DD's or Holeshots F&R. Great on a hard packed track. Try the 30 deg caster blocks on the front, should give you a little more turn in steering and tame down the mid to exit. From what you've described with your engine, it sounds like it's fat on bottom. The Smoothy is a great pipe and you shouldn't lack any bottom end power with it. If you want tons of bottom end, go back to the stock AE pipe. Also, you might try the NTC3 1.0 clutch springs, it will hit harder on the bottom.

BTW, the slipper is not a traction control device, your finger is. The slipper is there to save your drive train. Set it like it says in the manual and leave it alone. I'm wondering if it isn't slipping too much and then catching mid-corner. Might also explain the lack of bottom end.

the small pins do work good on the gt2 but with the shocks in rear standing up it seems to jump better then having it laydown,the rib tires with a soft compound does cause understeer if u ask me

I'm going to experiment more as our summer series goes on this year, but I was starting to really like the truck last year as I started going to softer springs and lighter oil. I'm currently running silver fronts with 30wt and green rears with 25wt.
