try loosening the rear diff-that really smoothed out my car in the exact way your describing. Loosen it till it wont slip-only.

another issue ive noticed with my xray is that the rear belt seems to be very tight. I have the high performance rear belt (the 3mm one) and i have it set to the loosest position possible but it still seems that the rear belt is too tight. Anyone else have this problem/issue??

how many times have you run the car? it should stretch after a while.

Two things: ensure that you haven't mixed up the standard pulleys from the low ratio pulleys. And that the eccentric hubs are equal (same holes) on both sides of the bulkheads.

The first thing I did was to swap out the front hubs with the Spring Steel hubs and have not had any wear problems. The car is built for all out performance so the aluminum hubs are lighter and faster. ...but for us normal hacks the steel hubs are more cost effective.

i mean they wear and the bearing is difficult to remove
from the hub. is it worth investing in the spring steel version?
