You need to retune your engine. Traxxas has the DVD with tuneing tips on it. To me, it sounds like the idle is too low and is fat. Take it to your local hobby shop for a tune.
Also check your fuel.
The spur grear solution is to check your gear mess. I run with a plastic spur season after season without a problem. Robinson Racing does make a metal spur for the 3.3 TMaxx.

My recomendation is to send it to your local hobby shop for a look over and a tune. They can help better than I or many others on a forum.
