Do some searching on this site on darting. Lots of info and opinions.
It appears that the ZX chassis is very prone to darting, especially the 02 with SCIII. Flex skis also dart bad. With enough tinkering, it can be minimized, or so they say. My 02 600 darted so bad at 40mph and up that I felt I was going to get thrown off. Nothing worked until I switched to Precision skis. It hasn't darted at all since. Tracks real nice -- just steers a little harder. I read that the Presicions were built for that very reason. The REVs don't like them, but they work good on the ZXs.

you added studs, what length carbie you running? with 96 studs I would recommend at least 6"s of carbine. As for other ideas - you say you have cranked the skies up to increase ski pressure... sometimes this is the exactly wrong thing to do. Try lighteneing the skis and stiffening the center spring. Next I would loosen the limiter straps a notch. It takes some experimenting to find the happy medium. Dont be afraid of it, just take it a step at a time and keep track of what you changed so you can adjsut backwards if needed.

When you have a ski tracking issue its that there is too much wieght on the skis. To remove wieght from the skis you:

dial the front spring preload down (lower ramp settings, looser springs, etc.)
Dial the front of the track up:
raise front track spring preload (higher setting, tighter springs)
Lengthen limiter straps (lets front spring push down father)
Loosen the ACM (if equiped)
lighten the rear spring preload.

Honestly - there is allot of room there without spending big money.

Have you check your ski alingment?
Another thing are you sure its darting or washing out in the back . At higher speeds darting decreases from the power going to the track lifting the front.
Like the others said you might be to stiff in the back to let the wt transfer from the front to the back.
I had a 00 mxz and once i got it dialed in , it didnt dart a bit .
