Make sure both edges of both rear tyres are rounded after you true them. I took the body off and used an emery board to do it. This car is tall and rounded edges are important to help it slide rather than tip. Doing the inside edges helps the tyres slide over the slot rail rather than catch on it.

Then clean the tyres thoroughly. Non-mag cars love clean tyres, the difference is surprising for handling as well as traction.

Also, the standard guide gives the car poor maximum lock so trim the edges off. Just use a pair of snips (Games Workshop ones are great) and nip the edges off to allow the guide to turn more before hitting the stops. And following on mtucker666's tip, trim the braid so the piece that's tucked under is short enough to sit flat in the recess in the underside of the guide. This piece of the braid is usually too long and sits a little proud of the recess, which in turn causes the main part of the braid to bulge downward, reducing the amount of the slot flag that can sit in the slot.
