I had the same problem on my HPI RS4 3 EVo. When I hit the throttle, I hear the engine reving but the car was inching forward. I had to change the spur gear 47 because it was worn down. The screws came loose on the engine mount and moved the engine slightly and it was enough to change contact pattern causing premature wear on the teeth. Simply enough, just replaced a 3 dollar part and tightened the engine mount screws with some thread lock and never saw the problem again.
