speed mods

hey guys. i did the following to my bike and was wondering if it would cause any problems in the long run.

1. put in hi-performance grease in all bearings
2. changed config of rear hub nuts so that the wheel spins better
3. running the chain @ medium loose
THE RESULT -> insanely quick bike (you can feel the kick when you let go of the brakes, it feels like a turbo i a car)

please let me know if this would cause any problems.

I'm not to sure how much that would effect your bike in the long run but if your looking to have your bike ride fast look into some high PSI tires if you dont already have some. Trust me having tires with 110 in them kills any drag you had before and anything lower feels like a flat tire.
