Which Yokomo belt and from which car?

Does this 23T Serpent pulley come from the 710, 835, or 950?

Where else in someone's set-up can "toe in" be avoided (springs, shock oil, etc.)? What's the maximum amount of toe a person should have before they need to focus on a different area for set-up?

It comes from the Impact. I actually put the part number in my post. Serpent USA has them I just got one the other day. You can get one from www.shopserpent.com That's where I got mine from. I don't know the part number of the pulley adapter. I got one of those from some guy at my track. The Serpent Pulley won't fit on the Mugen pulley adapter

To much toe can sometimes not be good because you scrub speed and it makes your rear tires wear fast, think about it you have one force working against another when your tires are cocked in to muck you are working against the grain of the tire and the surface pavement, this is what's called scrubbing speed it also works like a sander which causes access tire wear.
0 to 1.5 should more than enough the only time you want to run 2 to 3 degrees of toe is on a extremely high bite track, more toe in will cause the car to push more a keep your car from traction rolling.
When looking for more traction in the rear focus more on the camber and shock position, try giving the car more camber and laying the rear shocks down, you also can play with the camber gain, high the camber gain the more side bite.
This is what I do to prepare my car, just my opions, I'm always open to learn more so if something seem's out of place here please feal free to correct me.

Yes if you add more spacers this will give you more side bite.

The body also plays a big part in traction, try the Mazda 6, or the Losi Alfa, or the Kawahara Honda all these bodies work great.
The further you move the wing back the more rear traction.

Where can the Kawahara Honda body be purchased? Kawahara is a little scarce in these areas.

Ace Harware & hobby or Nitro House both are in Cali.
If you ask Ravi over at Fast N Furious he could order it for you.
