Good question, possibly one diff backwards. Easy mistake for newbies

You said that the tires balloon when holding it in the air... are the tires all turning the same direction when they are ballooning?

Just checked. Pull the trigger while holding car in the air and all four tires turn in the same direction.

The car, we need to see if something backwards or would bind causing car to move slow. Photo front rear and top center if u can.is your pinion gear tight? Also if your electronics are all new u need to do set up processes.

So with no resistance the tires balloon and then on the ground with resistance it barely moves. And you're sure you put 100,000 and maybe didn't put lighter fluid in the center allowing it to slip way more than its supposed to?

Even if he put 10,000 in center it would still hall ass.i tested 10,000 and it was ok..now the 500 shock oil would be a problem. .lol.

Yep! Exactly.

Any chance I just need to shim inside the diff to bring gear mesh closer/tighter?

If your teeth were barely catching and slipping that bad it would sound awful. So I guess the question is how does it sound?
