Another thing that helps me when I'm playing solo and I'm being too aggressive, is run a really slow tank.
My top 3 tanks to grind when I'm not hooked up with you guys are the Churchill III, the Super Pershing, and the TOG. Good credit/xp grinders, and slow compared to their peers in battle. It's a good mix for me.
