your traction problem is due to the width of the slicks. you can fit 9.5 inch wide slicks under the front of a focus on stock suspension 24.5 inches tall. they just bug out and look funny and may rub some if you turn too sharp. but i dont imagine that being a problem. the car has well over 500whp and is on stock suspension. somehow i dont think you built that car to turn.

If you spin half way down the track you run out of track trying to play catch up, its also physics...
