Stuttering Analogue cars

I have done a search on this forum and found that most of the topics about stuttering cars are regarding digital layouts. My layout is analogue Sport and certain cars seem to stutter in the same places.

The rails look perfect, the voltage is perfect and conductivity is spot on (tested with a meter). I have tried Inox MX3 and electrical contact cleaner on the rails with no change. I have changed the braids with little effect.

The only other thing I can think of is that the front wheels are lifting the braids from the track in certain places. Any other ideas?

If the track is fine, check the cars. The motors may be on their way out (this can be checked simply by watching the red light on the sport powerbase as the light will dim or go out altogether if the motor is defective). Also the wiring may be loose either on the motor or where they attach to the guide.

Hope you sort the problem soon!
