If the mesh is right you could have a bent motor plate or a pinion that is defective...

Have you tried loosening the slipper a little bit?

My buddy has a slash that did the same thing on occasion. The chassis flexed a bit at the rear and the 54T spur is really close to the bottom and would hit on big jumps. Switched it to a smaller 52 and the problem went away.

Are you sure you have the correct pinion? Mod1, Mod0.8, 32 pitch? They gotta match or you will have issues.
