Collisions effecting all movement

When the ball collides with objects it bounces off, but when doing so, it changes the direction of other balls in the scene. Also when the ball collides with another ball it pauses before bouncing off each other.

extends KinematicBody2D

export var ball_speed = 400
var direction = Vector2()

onready var target = get_tree().get_root().find_node("Player", true, false)

export(PackedScene) var ExplosionEffect: PackedScene = 

func _ready():

    global_position = $Position_1.global_position

    direction = (target.global_position - global_position).normalized() * ball_speed

func blow_up():

    var scene_instance = (ExplosionEffect.instance())
    scene_instance.global_position = global_position
    scene_instance.get_node(".").scale.x = 1
    scene_instance.get_node(".").scale.y = 1


func _physics_process(delta):


    var collision = move_and_collide(direction * delta)  

    if collision:
	    if collision.get_collider().is_in_group("Player"):
    if collision:
	    direction = direction.bounce(collision.normal)  # Here's the issue 

Try making the other ball instances local to the scene

I turned on local to scene but it still doesn’t work

Any other ideas ???
