I've long overlooked an issue with the tires.  These are not fixed well to their rims.  The tires easily slip over the rims when the car breaks or accelerates too briskly.

CA-glue along the edges of the rim solves that issue.  The short-stop behavior of the car has improved.  The acceleration should also be improved, but that's harder to notice/measure.
