Wheel hop can be counteracted in two ways, drive around the problem, accelerate more smoothly to prevent the amount of wheel hop; which usually occurs due to accelerating too harshly. Alternatively, remove the tyres & check the hubs for out of round wheels, sand off any lumps on the wheel rims, sand the tyres so that the maximum contact patch touches the track - worse case scenario the rear axle is bent.

Team Slot cars have tremendous braking in my view and reward the aggressive driver; grab it buy the scruff of the neck; on-off approach, all or nothing to the driving, the cars thrive by this style.

I learnt this technique at my local club during a race, I was racing an SCX (very similar IMHO) and they were marshalling mentioned that I was braking to early...
