Default Rustler transmission issue?

Have a rustler and when I give it gas it barely moves (couple mph) and really only one wheel seems to be moving. If I spin one wheel the other goes the opposite way but when I give it gas it just gets loud. Where should I start? Is it a clutch issue or do I need to rip apart transmission?

just to follow up after taking everything apart it seems the hex nut that locks into rim and makes it spin was damaged and the grove that locks the pin in place was mostly closed. So the axle was spinning but not getting power to wheels. After replacing that hex and locking it in fully truck started to work.
