the tires aren't warmed up......the diffs are adjusted wrong,the car could be tweaked(are all the shock shafts teh same length?)...all the cvds together?(none slipping,all 4 wheels driving?)...........maybe one of the belts are loose..

Try adding a touch of drag-brake.

you should make sure the car is set up as per the book..put the diffs back in,(always start stock),run the car on a level surface,make sure you have traction(either from the tires OR surface)..and bring it racing and I'll check it..BTW,my 2 tc3's(both with RB turbos,one a 5 port),don't do that....and that hasn't been a problem anyone else is having either..so stay calm,we'll figure it out....and put the diffs back in!!!(at least till we get it running straight)..
