when i back pedal, the King hub is so sluggish that the chain slaps down to the chainstay. Is this common? It has 200-500 miles on it already. Thanks.

I've used the King hub for mountain and road for a LONG time and they are just a bit more "sluggish" than some of the others. What I've done in the past is put just a few drops of a teflon based lube on both the needle bearings and the ring drive system. Don't put too much just a little to help "thin" out the grease a bit. I use a combination of Phil Wood grease with Tri-Flow, try this combo you will like it.
