Post Traction vs. Grip

In the British magazines i always see stuff like "the RB5 has traction like the top dog's bollocks, and grip at insane levels".

What is the difference between grip and traction?

My guess: Traction - acceleration. Grip - lateral loads (Gs)???

And another thing, what is a fly-by-wire throttle?
