try a heavier oil in the centre, and by heavier I mean 3000 or more up from what you have

If its electric try 5/7/4 or 5 or just change center to 7 and see if that makes a diffrence. Electrics will always ballon front tires a lil but a thicker center add more rear drive. The balloning isnt really somthing to worry about if its not bad and set up feels good leave it alone.

Well if you add more rear drive, you are not diffing the power to the front as much are you? that is the problem, specially if he's got a hight turn motor.

Long story short use a leather punch to put 4 holes(one on each side of the circle) on each tire to allow the tires to breath. Its just pressure building up from the friction of the tires touching the surface.

+1 that could be a major reason to balloning ur not letting the air escape the tire, why didnt i think of that!
