Yeah its the most far-back guide I have seen!

Since there is no room for the guide to be much in front of the front axle, I guess making sure it was running as a tripod would benefit this car.

If it still topples after the guide adjustments, I would imagine the 2 factors would be to lower the centre of gravity (reducing weight high uo, adding weight low down, grinding down the tyres so it sits lower), and reducing lateral grip. Not sure how to do that! Also making sure the tyres have a rounded profile rather than square one when virewed from the front. Taking the edges off seems to reduce tipping a lot.

Moving the guide seems like a 'must do'

If I were you, I would true all the tyres so the mold line down the middle was gone and assess the car's performance like that before making other decisions

QUOTE the position has 'naturally' moved forward

My understanding is that the position of the pivot of the guide is the important factor, in which case the 'position' has not changed.

But I am glad it is driving better!
