Default New Axial AX-10

Just put the final finishing touches on my new Axial and took it out for a trial run near the house and found a few issues I am too green to determine myself, have a few ideas but would like some validation from the experts here.
1. Body Sway/Roll, way too much for my liking, is this normal or am I correct in assuming this is a bit much. Really moves from what I determine is motor torque. Shocks too weak?
2. For some reason this little beast seems to be faster and have more motor torque in reverse than in forward. Is this a controller issue possibly?
3. Rolls really easy and seems a bit top heavy, I moved the 6-cell battery pack down behind the servo on to a mount I fabricated from aluminum plate to try an correct this but no too much luck. Going to 3-4-cell packs over the axle as soon as my plates arrive.

You'll dig it. The speed thing is prob. a esc issue. It should be the same speed forward and rev.

I had the same body sway problems when I first got mine going. I put a single spacer on the left rear spring and it helped mucho. I also added about 7 oz to the two front wheels, and that helped. Then I went with a 1250 lipo and mounted it to the rear servo mount. Those three things made the biggest difference for me. It's an awesome truck- enjoy it!
