On rougher track (Ninco etc) then the stock tyres provide adequate grip, just make sure you glue them on to the hubs and true them. On sport, carrera and routed then proslots work well but not sure if any will fit on to the hubs. If not then swap hubs for slot-it ones and proslots fit on them nicely.

other in no particualr order:
- Get rid of any sideways (rear and front) axle slop with washers.
- scrape about 0.5mm off all the chassis edges and expand screw holes a bit so that nothing will impede flexing
- change braids so they are single strand
- reduce front tyres so the just touch the track while the guide is 100% in the slot and varnish the front tyres.
- they have a high cog so if you add weight get sheet lead and glue a strip on the underside of the chassis in front of the rear wheels (going from back to front).
- lube it up and run the motor in removing the little capicitor.
- remove all the lighting gizmo stuff

no hard and fast rules to how well a no mag car will perform against a mag car. If you have a twisty track the mag car will be much better whereas on a longer flowing track the non-mag car will often match or beat the mag car.

For any given track the easiest way to see how much diff mag makes is: get a slot it car (basically cause they run well with and w/o a mag without needing to do anything to it) run it with the mag in and time it, run it with no mag and time it. Whats the %age diff and thats a good %age benchmark for your other cars to aim at.
