Ive always found my spinning out issues were either tweak or a bearing was causing the problem. Check your tweak then check your bearings.

On throttle anywhere on the track or on throttle coming out of a turn?

What surface are you running on? Tight technical track or large and flowing?

That will help us narrow down the problem.

I don't know about the tc4, but with the tc3 you could overtighten the wheel nuts, which could cause some problems withe the wheel binding up and making it handle odd, veering off to the side you've overtightened.

I'd check your droop is equal too.

Front diff not working? That's the same as driving a 2wd car. So that's definitely not helping.
