    Drag radials would be a good start.

    Traction, what's that? It's like trying to find a unicorn.

    There are a several things besides getting larger and more sticky tires - less air pressure helps to a point, less tread height removes the tread "give", heat in tires, and weight balance & transfer (shocks and springs) And of course, great feel for the clutch and accelerator since one of the beauties of this car is to achieve maximum control so it's just on the edge without losing it.

    I don't think any valet would ever get past the vetting process before I'd let them drive my cat - even with black key fob and valet mode....

    Seat time and driving your car is the best starting point. Different tires is the next step. Check out some threads and members like tire God and sgoyal are very valuable sources of information.
