Default 18t spins out on power.

My Xray m18t spins out when I apply power (from about 1/2 throttle up).
I have found the rear diff very stiff. I loosened the lock screw a small amount but one wheel appears to be very loose compared to the other 3.
For example if I hold one rear wheel firmly and turn the other one, both front wheels drive a bit when on a smooth surface. If I do this with the other rear wheel it turns easily (little resistance) and the front wheels do not try to turn.
If I do the same either of the front wheels the rear wheels drive.
To me the problem lies with the rear diff. How do I adjust it to get even drive.

sounds like a bad outdrive/diff side gear has gone to lunch. i would disassemble the end that is locked up and see whats broken.
