Increasing grip is always a good way to help keep cars on. Sanding new rubber is the first step. Keeping them clean is the next, such as with a tape roll or wet rag (using the sanding technique), or even just a quick lick and scrub using your thumbs. After that, you can try additives like a quick wipe of WD-40, or an overnight application of 3-in-1 oil. If those things aren't enough, changing tires is the next step. All these traction increasing ideas are great for magnet racing, but make an even bigger difference for magless, where a brand new car might not even GO around the track, let alone go well.

I've got a bunch of general and digital tips on my site, much/most of which I learned from the pros on this board, other boards, and in person at race meets.
