Default Micro Rolling problem???

I just finished my micro. It doesn't roll freely and I can't figure out why. I have a ball dif in the rear and a one-way in the front. and Steel Universals up front. All are HPI. I also put in Alum Steering Knuckles from Top cuz I seen so many people Break the plastic ones. I'm using Pro-match 6 cells packs and an HPI mod motor witha Hitec HS-81 MG Micro Servo. It runs fine other than the rolling issue. Which is killing my run time and performance. The only thing I noticed is the wheel hubs rub the inside so I demeled them out and rolls better now any one else have these problems. aor anything else that caused this nasty binding please help. Thanks, Rob

Not sure if this could be it, but check your belt pulleys. The only time mine would run slow was when the belt would pick up little bits of dirt & pack it into the pulley. Pick the bits out with a toothpick & all is back to normal.
