Do you mean the slipper spring? I also suspect you need to tighten the diff, the screw inside the left outdrive behind the dogbone/driveshaft.

Donít overdo it though. Check by holding both rear wheels and turning the spur gear by hand. The slipper should always slip before the diff, meaning the slipper spring and nut should not turn with the spur gear.

Like mentioned that sound is your diff inside the tranny slipping . Tighten it up before running again or you could melt the diff gear . Also , once you have the diff tight you want to set the slipper to slip a bit on take off , usually 1-3 feet depending on track conditions .

You can turn down the throttle on your radio , possibly turn down the ESC depending on what brand it is , and loosen the slipper up .
