Sprung/Floating Guide??

(I asked a similar question to this a week or so back, but that was in relation to Scalextric cars, so the answers I got there wouldn't apply here)

I've got a Fly BMW M3 rally car which really needs a sprung or floating guide. I've read that the Ninco sprung guides have an odd post size. Is this correct? If so, is there a sprung or floating guide that is a plug & play replacement for the standard "rally track unfriendly" Fly one? Now I come to think of it, I also have a couple of old SCX rally cars with fixed guides as well.....

Thank you both for the input. I'll order a pack of Ninco guides and see how I get on.

Yes, it needs some downward movement in the guide. All my later SCX (post 6xxxx) rally cars, and my sole Team Slot car, run fine but any cars with fixed guides (Scalextric or 8xxxx series SCX, and the Fly car that's the actual subject of this thread) lose contact with the rails on my rally track.
