Have you tried making a few passes on the hankooks? My car launches very hard on street tires. I'd be scared to put anything stickier on for fear of blowing up a tranny/diff/axle.

Lose the front sway bar and use soft rear springs.

so your tires can come down further if the front end lifts this can translate into more contact and the ability to steer. Wich could be handy

yes, and also more front lift = more rear squat = more weight transfer to the rear where traction is needed.
