You can increase aileron deflection, increase the size of your ailerons or fly faster. Mix and match as you find necessary.

When you roll, add rudder to the same direction and a little elevator. It will not be very aligned, but your barrels will be fast as hell.

If you are fighting adverse yaw adding a little rudder will make it faster. increasing the throw may help but you do reach a point of diminishing returns. You should try adding a little rudder and see what that does before changing throw. If you do decide to add throw, do it in small increments until you don't see much change. I wouldn't go past 45 degrees throw though.

I guess that's what it's called. I always assumed that a snap roll starts out horizontal and ends up vertical with the plane rapidly changing direction, but I may be wrong.
