traction bars

I have a nova that has traction bars on it. I've noticed when it's snowing out and the roads are slippery that if I try to accelerate through the ice/slush that the car seems to start to lose power, as if it were almost flooding out, would this be because of the traction bars transferring energy to the rear but with little to no traction anyways it just ends up pumping too much fuel/air in and loses power?
I've asked questions in other threads and may also have a carb problem anyways so this might just be a coincidence.

Nope, it has nothing to do with traction or lack of it. Traction bars aren't doing a thing in foul weather anyway, they can only help traction when there is a load placed back on them by tire traction to dry pavement. They don't do anything in snow or rain.

Look at the carb and choke, air cleaner preheat tube, ignition system, fuel line/filter.
