Most likely it is one of two things: Either your pinion gear is not tight on the motor shaft or your pinion and spur gear are not tuching. check those two things and I'm about 95% positive you'll find the problem. Good Luck!

you might not have tightened the center diff enough.

when you push your TLT you should feel the drag from the motor. If you push your TLT and you feel little or no drag look at the drivetrain to see where slippage is happening. This will give you a better idea of where to start troubleshooting. Let me know what you find out maybe I can get you pionted in the right direction. The center diff sounds VERY probible though.

do not loosen it . if it starts slipping, it will heat up and melt the diff gear.
i already did that. lol you might have put it in backwards and as your driving it will loosen the diff nut. its been awhile since i worked on mine so i dont remember if it is possible to put it in backwards. check it.
add the rear steering. i used a servo reverser connector so i did not have to do mess with the radio.

That's weird. Most people have the diff tightened all the way down without any problems. Some rock crawlers put a screw through the diffs to get rid of the diff action all together.

If you find out anything else that might have caused it, let us know
