I don't know what the mudders kit has with it. Give some more info . What color springs are you running and did the kit have weights?

IMO the lighter weights are not the way to go with big tires.The lighter weights cause the primary to have to spin faster to create enough force to over come the spring pressure.This will raise your RPM's which is good for big tires but it also causes less belt grip in the primary at low RPM's which is bad.The red secondary should be fine if not even excessive. A strong secondary spring will hold the belt higher in the secondary for a longer time effective making it lower geared. Thats a good thing for big tires but you can have to much spring.The strong spring puts a lot of side force on the belt causing a lot of heat.While I'm not totally convinced that a red secondary is needed for the 29.5's i would say it would be OK.The overwhelming mass of people you see post on this matter with 29'5s say this spring works great.But i would not go any stronger.

Try putting the stock weights back in the primary with either the stock or pink primary spring. Make sure your deflection is set right when you add the new belt. You also need to check the condition of your primary and secondary clutch sheaves to make sure there are no groves in them.

I would like to add that I am far from a clutch guru.Someone else may disagree with what I'm saying but what works for one is different for another. I'm still learning my self. Your better off to try a few different things to see what works best for you.
