Ok, I think that I managed to identify the issue. The chiral NDR
traces that DiracTrace complains about are actually spurious and
evaluate to zero. If the relevant Lorentz indices are contracted
at the right moment, this is also the case.

With this fix


it should work fine now. Please reinstall FeynCalc.

BTW, after removing all the intermediate instances of DiracSimplify and
Contract, your code evaluates about 10 times faster than before:

DeclareNonCommutative[L, R];
L = ChiralityProjector[-1];
R = ChiralityProjector[+1];

dm[mu_] := GAD[mu]
ds[p_] := GSD[p]
IDm = L + R;
sp[p_, q_] := ScalarProduct[p, q, Dimension -> D]
prop[p_, m_] := GSD[p] + IDm*m;

Proj[gL_, gR_] := gL*L + gR*R;

ScalarProduct[pN, pN] = mN^2;
ScalarProduct[pG, pG] = 0;
ScalarProduct[pN, pG] = mA^2/2;
ScalarProduct[pG, pN] = mA^2/2;

C\[Mu]F[\[Mu]_] := (FVD[pN, \[Mu]] + FVD[pG, \[Mu]]) C1F +
   FVD[pN, \[Mu]] C2F
C\[Mu]\[Nu]F[\[Mu]_, \[Nu]_] :=
  MTD[\[Mu], \[Nu]] C00F + (FVD[pN, \[Mu]] +
      FVD[pG, \[Mu]]) (FVD[pN, \[Nu]] + FVD[pG, \[Nu]]) C11F +
   FVD[pN, \[Mu]] FVD[
     pN, \[Nu]] C22F + ((FVD[pN, \[Mu]] + FVD[pG, \[Mu]]) FVD[
        pN, \[Nu]] +
      FVD[pN, \[Mu]] (FVD[pN, \[Nu]] + FVD[pG, \[Nu]])) C12F

AmpF = (I Q)/(16 \[Pi]^2) (DOT[Proj[g2L, g2R], dm[\[Rho]], dm[\[Mu]],
        Proj[g1L, g1R]] (C\[Mu]\[Nu]F[\[Rho], \[Sigma]] +
         FVD[pN, \[Rho]] C\[Mu]F[\[Sigma]] +
         FVD[pG + pN, \[Sigma]] C\[Mu]F[\[Rho]] +
         FVD[pN, \[Rho]] FVD[pN + pG, \[Sigma]] C0F) +
      mF*DOT[Proj[g2L, g2R], dm[\[Rho]], dm[\[Mu]],
        Proj[g1L, g1R]] (C\[Mu]F[\[Rho]] + FVD[pN, \[Rho]] C0F) +
      mF*DOT[Proj[g2L, g2R], dm[\[Mu]], dm[\[Sigma]],
         g1R]] (C\[Mu]F[\[Sigma]] + (FVD[pN, \[Sigma]] +
            FVD[pG, \[Sigma]]) C0F) +
      mF^2*DOT[Proj[g2L, g2R], dm[\[Mu]], Proj[g1L, g1R]] C0F);

AmpFconj = -((I Q)/(16 \[Pi]^2)) (DOT[
        Proj[Conjugate[g1R], Conjugate[g1L]], dm[\[Beta]], dm[\[Mu]],
         Conjugate[g2L]]] (C\[Mu]\[Nu]F[\[Alpha], \[Beta]] +
         FVD[pN, \[Alpha]] C\[Mu]F[\[Beta]] +
         FVD[pG + pN, \[Beta]] C\[Mu]F[\[Alpha]] +
         FVD[pN, \[Alpha]] FVD[pN + pG, \[Beta]] C0F) +
      mF*DOT[Proj[Conjugate[g1R], Conjugate[g1L]], dm[\[Beta]],
        Proj[Conjugate[g2L], Conjugate[g2L]]] (C\[Mu]F[\[Beta]] +
         FVD[pN, \[Beta]] C0F) +
      mF*DOT[Proj[Conjugate[g1R], Conjugate[g1L]], dm[\[Mu]],
         g1R]] (C\[Mu]F[\[Alpha]] + (FVD[pN, \[Alpha]] +

      mF^2*DOT[Proj[Conjugate[g1R], Conjugate[g1L]], dm[\[Mu]],
        Proj[g1L, g1R]] C0F);

AmpF2 = prop[pG + pN, mA]. AmpFconj .prop[pN, mN] .AmpF

res = DiracTrace[AmpF2, DiracTraceEvaluate -> True]; // AbsoluteTiming
