When approaching a corner, back off the throttle a little bit, and then turn. Try that and tell us how you go.

They are so many things that can be the reason, but the obvious is what Radio Active said, in electrics you need to slow down before the bend, keep a constant speed during the turn and accelerate coming out to the next bend, something IC drivers find hard to do, as they brake later and accelerate in the bend.

Then your car setup, have a look through the net to find a setup sheet for your model, I am not familiar with Tamiya, never had one!

Make sure that your car is well built as explain in your manual, I have seen cars with right to left suspension parts on the wrong side before.

Put a little bit more toe in on the rear, check that suspensions are not too soft/hard etc...

You can start with this, it should help, and remember, there is no point to be the fastest on a straight line if you cannot take a bend and come off track at every turn.

Good racing

Check the servo travel. Make sure that the horn is moving as far as it can go, without conflicting with the steering rack.
