Can you tell us the details of how it is setup?

Otherwise the first thing I would do is soften the springs, use softer wheels and add more toe-in in the rear.

I have NTC3 too, i set up my rear suspension soft for low bite traction and stiff for high bite, also try taking out sway bars in the rear if u have one. You mentioned u run it in the parking lot, dusty/dirty parking lot will have no traction also....

You're almost certainly running your rear diff to tight. Can't excatly rember what the manual recommends but slacken it off from book about a 1/10th of a turn more. Or looking at it as a clockface about 5 minutes. That should really help.

The NTC3 uses a ball diff??
I thought it was a gear diff. Otherwise, make sure that the rear wheel turn freely when twisting them in opposing ways. if its hard to rotate them, that makes it slippery as anything. Make it softer using 10K weight or so.
