Have you readjusted the slipper clutch? That motor is making so much more power than the other, that the clutch is slipping and must be adjusted.

hi chris..after looking up ur buggy ..I dont see slipper on that trans.. the only thing i can see is the way the diff is built with that motor 9.5 it will just spin as u said -cause to much rpm for that trans..not sure u can do much ..might try a Metal gears in trans..but that might not work..due to 3 little gears in main drive gear..

Looks like direct drive 4wd. That BL setup is likely trashing your diff.

Make sure the pinion is locked down on the motor shaft. The grub screw should be contacting the flat that's ground onto the shaft.

Other then that, start by taking apart your rear diff and making sure nothing's stripped.
