Like it has been said already, no your problem is not normal.

First thing I would check is the brakes. Make sure they are free. Next I would check the tires. See if the inside rim is rubbing on the uprights.

If you still have the problem then start removing belts. Your problem should be easy to find with a simple process of elimination.

They've covered most of it......but I would aslo check to make sure that the special cam style diff mounts for the rear, are both in the same hole. This could cause some drag if they aren't.

First, I would check out the brakes though. Make sure they are free, and that neithe pad has seperated from the calipers or anything. When your done, and everything is right, your car should roll easily along. The drive train on this car is VERY free right out of the box.

I found my diff problem. I had been tinkering around and isolated the problem, it was the diff itself. I had screwed in one of the 4 screws just a bit to much, causing the whole thing to bend and get crooked. Doh, now I have to wait for new parts...

Man, it was so tough screwing in those diff case screws with a No. 0 screw driver, that once they stopped, I was happy to be done. I wasn't about to screw them in any further than they wanted to go! I was quite happy to stop twisting!
