Default Not getting full power to the wheels

Something is not right with the monster still. I don't know what is going on with it but it is not get all the power to the wheels. It sounds like something is grinding or not make the contact that it needs. It is moving but still sounds like the gears are not making full contact with each other. It is not moving full speed the motor is ripping but it will not go very fast something is not right. PLEASE HELP

Could be several things. Need to check if while your engine is ripping and you are not moving very fast that your brake is not on when full throttle is applied, see if your spur gear is turning as fast as you think it should for the engine speed , slipper clutch (if you have one) is not to loose, Could have stripped gear in trany, you are not spinning your drive line cups, could have also stripped your diffs.
Make and model of truck will also help us help you trouble shoot.

My psychic powers tell me you need to tighten your slipper clutch and inspect your diffs.

all of the above . plus if making an 8th scale conversion with a center diff you must use some type of fluid to make the diff lock up in order to not have it pull the front all the time nitro motors do not have the instant torq of the electric and is less noticeable .
