Default Problem with my PRO3.

Okay, gonna get right to the point here. My RS4 PRO3 won't go anywhere. If I lift it up off the ground and hit the gas, the tires will spin, but if I put it down and hit the gas it won't go anywhere. If it moves it's because it's rolling down a hill. The spurs are all good, and from what i can see and feel the axles are too, but I could be wrong on the axles. I've tried using both my 13 and my 19t motor 'cause I thought maybe it was the ESC but both do the same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated, since it's getting nice out and I haven't run it in a year.
HPI RS4 PRO3 - 13T, alloy arms, rest is stock. Currently out of commission :(
Micro RS4 - Also out of commission :(
Traxxas T-Maxx 3.3 - Wicked. HD Front arms, all else stock.
Restoration project - Kyosho Wildcat: Dunebuggy-style, all-metal, should be fun! Needs LOTS of work.

check to see if your diffs are adjusted right...they might be loose, that's why it won't move

also check if you're pinion is properly tightend.
