Default Tornado EPX Pro going slow

Hello, I am having a problem with my Tornado EPX Pro. I hit the throttle full speed and the car barley moves, The main gears spin like they should but the rear gear box doesn't seem to get any power. If i hold the car in the air it spins the wheels just fine but if I try to drive it on the ground it goes very slow. I have opened the rear gear box multiple times, I changed the rear diff fluid, I checked that none of the gears are damaged. It seems like the drive gear is not touching the main diff gear.I have taken a video of this so you can see what it sounds like.

Any ideas how to fix this?

How are the clutch shoes? If they are worn or damaged or the clutch bell that go's over the shoes are worn or dirty the clutch will spin and not inguage very good if at all.

Duh I stand corrected (to many cars with the same name I didn't catch the EXP on my phone). But there is a slipper clutch which will do kind of the same thing. The plates could be worn, spring could be worn or popped out, or the nut could be backed out. the power is getting into the gearbox but not out. So something is slipping in the gear box and that would be a good bet to look at.
