Traction control on a car W/O it?

Help me brainstorm a way to do this without using the wheel speed sensors, if possible.
Should I just set the RPM limiter low, around 4,500rpm?
Or is there a way to limit TQ by vehicle speed? (which I believe would back off ignition timing to reduce power)

I'd like to reduce throttle response for winter and set up some type of traction aid, however crude.

In years past I've just restricted air coming into the engine and that did alright. Wasn't perfect by any means though. I'd like something better so I don't sit and spin every time I stop/start.

Don't "think outside the box".
There is no box.
Do it correct, or do it twice.
