So you have a lot of suggestions to play with now... but if you answer the post by Butch Man... AND tell us what car/motor/pipe/clutch/setup you are running, we can give you some specific tips. (When I say setup, I mean toe, camber, diff fluids, shock fluids, springs, camber link locations, droop, everything.)
Brad "DOMIT" Smith - I'm not fast, but at least I wreck a lot.
Unsponsored, but I use/recommend: XRay XB9, Alpha A852, Dynamite 053, Airtronics M11, Hitec 5955TG & 7955TG, ABEC 35 clutch and chassis bearings, PTRCRacing shock and diff fluids, Ready Rollers ceramic engine bearings. ** Team Terribles Region 9 coordinator. ** JOIN TEAM TERRIBLES!

Before playing with diff oils etc just try the tires in your box i was amazed at the difference in forward traction between the Losi GRP atomics i usually run and the XBT tires that came with my 2.0 kit the tires hooked up hard on corner exits and launched the car forward this extra grip make the car a lot less stable in the rough sections and the tires seemed to have less side grip in the corners but i'm sure i can get them to work with some camber adjustments.
Less toe on the wheels usualy yields better forward performance from the tires more anti squat as well but you usually give up some stability on rough parts of the track.

More anti-squat would be the most noticeable gain.

Default Traction

I think the best change for traction is moving the the rear hubs forward.
