Default I need some help with my TC3

I'm sure this is an easy fix but I'm not sure whats wrong with it. Seems like its mostly FWD only. Looked in the rear diff and didn't see anything wrong. Tightened down the allen and then backed it off 1/4 or so. Still seems like it's slipping quite abit.
Thank you!

(and what part do I need if a couple of the screws that go into the diff cover are loose?)

Its been a while since I've had a TC3 but I think the setting is tighten the diff down and back it off 1/8th of a turn.
It could also be a bad thrust spring, also if the bushings or the bearings are to thick you wont be able to tighten them enough. And if they are the plastic out drives they are a little funny feeling any way. Also theres a TC3 thread around here some where? I know they can figure it out.
Have you rebuilt it yet?

Do you have the bushings in the plastic diff outdrives and the bearing in the steel ones?

If your diffs are tight and they are still slipping get some Team Associated Stealth Lube and put it on your balls.. Your diff balls that is....
