Wow so hard question since there are SO many ways to make more rear grip. Always start with tires, softer rear tires. Then you could try springs.
My setup for my rear (which may be completely useless to you) is right now:
Running the graphite arms
Rear 2 degree Toe
3.5 left and 3 right rear camber
lower inner hole for link
2mm under rear upright
3mm front and 2mm rear for wheelbase
30,000 wt 4 gear rear diff
black swaybar with 1mm extra bar showing mounted to the OUTER holes (this is important)
innermost hole on shocktower
alloy body shocks with Kyosho Light blue Front springs
HPI 30 shore o-rings with greenslime
HPI 50 wt shock oil
HPI 50 shore Bladders
Derlin machined pistons with 3 x 0.9mm holes (I bored them .1mm from 0.8)
Hot Bodies hollow nitrided shock shafts which are also 1mm shorter.
4.5mm ride height
and I run nitro shoes, using 38 shore at 59mm generally
