If you haven't already set them make sure to check your tire pressures. This doesn't sound like a big deal but it's huge. I'm not sure what model your running or tire size you have, but on the bigger 24" commercials tires I run anywhere from 8 to 12 psi. This can make a world of difference. Some ZTRs are balanced different than other models as well. More weight on the rear wheels usually means better traction but can also me lighter front end which may bounce more over rough surfaces, or feel less stable on an uphill climb, and cause more tearing of the turf turning. Not enough weight in the rear may cause less grip but aid in the said previous things. The only other option I can think of off hand is adding a little weight to the rear and see how it handles. Usually slow smooth movement is what you want with no wheel spin.
