Default Spur Gear Slip

I put larger tires on my XXXNT so I could drive in the grass, then she stopped moving. The tires still spin when I hold them off the ground, but when I put them on the ground, the spur gear slips. What causes this, and what do I need to do to fix it?

Easy check list first:

Make sure the slipper is tight
Make sure the wheels are on correct. If you don't get the pin in the wheel slot the axle will spin inside the wheel.
Check your diff. If it's too loose it will slip under a load.
