You may just end up trading an overly sharp D2 for a stuffy one if you open the C key more. In fast technical passages, the tone quality of the D is not as important as when the note is sustained such as in a ballad. In those cases you can open the low C# key to increase the venting of the D, although you may end up having to lip it down even more than usual. Another fingering I sometimes use is to add the palm D to the D2 fingering to open up the sound a bit.
