Yes you want it to hit the tires harder. Sorry if my first bonehead post was confusing.

I am wondering if you are having traction problems now or if you have ever had it on the track to see how it runs. If it is not spinning, and it is not pulling the front end, I would say something in your combo is not right. Gear or converter come to mind. What kind of times does it run?
