My first bit of advice would be to reduce your ride height. I am pretty sure I read that @Billl DeLong uses the VRP towers that allows you to adjust your ride height even lower than stock. If Bill chimes in, he will have some good info for you, he runs on carpet and can probably elaborate more.

Thanks for the tag TBuggy.

Yes I am currently racing my ET410 on high traction turf and I've got my ride height down to 14mm with SCT wheels and the VRP +4mm towers, I have also ran this same setup with ST wheels, more of my notes comparing results between both wheel styles here:

Biggest changes to prevent traction roll, Lower ride height, Red springs, thicker anti-roll bars, my setup is also set to be stable, good luck!

I also see that you've got Prisms on the front, I am running Wedge on front which is less aggressive, if I were to run Prisms on front then I would shave the outer rows of pins on both sides with a sanding wheel on a dremel to give the tire a "mohawk" look. First try my setup changes, then keep shaving off 1 row at a time until you stop traction rolling. Or simply change to Wedges on the front ;)
