sounds like your tune is out. try setting your hsn & lsn back to factory settings.

Is it a engine/rev-y jump or a notchy/geary jump? A friend of mine had the same issue with a t-maxx that he built from ebay parts years ago, and it turned out that he had the diffs installed upside-down, and the transmission was running in reverse while the truck was moving forward, and vice versa. The notchy jump was reverse engaging. It took him a while to realize that was happening. If your truck is new though, I wouldn't think that would be the problem...shot in the dark...
