If it is your brakes sticking you can do the slammer rc brake mod.Take the spring out of an odinary ball point pen and put it on the brake pins like in the pic.Also put a piece of fuel tubing in place of the spring on the throttle linkageWorks for me

Are they locking up? or just slowing down like they have resistance from the brakes? I lost a tooth on a spur that got wedged into another tooth and locked my rear wheels completely, check your spur for debris.
