Default E revo motor mount issue

hi guys i recently converted a brushless summit (mmp) to an e revo. But i am having an issue. whenever i give it full throttle the motor mount slips and the pinion and spur becomes un messed. its like no matter how much i tighten the mesh screw it slips. also as i tighten it the mounts wants to go towards the spur gear, so if i tighten too much my gear mesh is too tight. If i hold the car off the ground and give it full throttle it runs smooth, but soon as i hit the floor SLIP no more gear mesh. I hope you guys can help me out with this thanks.

Is it the top screw or the bottom screw that is moving around?

If its the top screw, you may have stripped or worn the threads inside the motor mount.

If loctite doesn't cure the problem, you might want to get another motor mount.
