So when I start going at a faster speed take off and keep going it is smooth and fine, but if I take it really easy then it seems to jerk when I take off and jerks a little as you continue to progress slower down the road.
Do you
have the same problem?

When traction is off it doesn't seem to jerk or anything yet.
