Default Suggestions With Traction On Pavement?

Other than the VHT i spray down, i cannot get any traction with my Jato, in my video i had stock gears and was just tuning my new mods. now that i want to try and go 70+MPH , i went to 40/20 Revo gears, Foam 2020/2040Jaco tires and 33% nitro, well now i cant even get into second gear, it spins out of control. My engine mods are sleeve work crankshaft port work etc, ported pipe, pull start, and my car now only weights 4.3 LBS which may be part of the problem, maybe the answer is 1/8 scale tires? Ill take suggestions. my jato was faster out of the box. its like putting a 1000HP engine in a go-cart

not sure but maybe try to warn em up a bit like slicks with dragters and nascar how they spin the tires a bit to get them heated and grip. not 100% sure but worth a try or even get a pair and slit them like a pattern can work i did that on some on roads i had and my gt2 it worked pretty good.

For foams buy some traction compound . any type will work look on A-Main.
If for hole shot spray down some cheap grape soda or sugar water for 30 feet or so.
Also see this for foam & slicks
