If you're spinning the spur gear with you hand then thats normal cause of the slipper clutch. If your engine is just revving and the car isnt moving then either your slipper clutch is'nt set properly or the pegs on the spur are worn out or there is something else inside the tranmission thats messed up. If I remember right the traxxas site says turn the nut on the slipper all the way in and then back it out 1/4 turn. Try that first.

but thats the problem the spur gear spins on the little circle thing in side it, so it wont spin the shaft.

and its a new spur gear and its a new every thing that touches the spur, besides the clutch bell
