I think you are doing a fine job with the set up you have. I am not so sure it is the TPI that is the problem though. Although it is not ideal I use a 4 TPI 1/4 inch blade and have sawn 180mm deep hardwood boards (including some BRW) with very little drift. My saw is a 1940's 12 inch wheeled job and that old casting allows for some pretty serious blade tension, I still need to use a slow feed though.
