Not sure what you've got done to your car at this point suspension wise... I've only had my Smart for about 2 months so I haven't delved super deep into it yet. One thing that I was surprised how much it helped front grip and turn in was wheel spacers. I put 15mm spacers on the front, 20 rear, and it made a world of difference. The car felt like it was crabbing almost through hard turns. It would slip and grip, slip and grip very quickly. The spacers reduced that by 90%.

If you're going down the tire route putting maybe some rears up front would help. That's next on my list of mods.
