My Revo does it, just means your getting the power to the ground.
Just have fun, & run it until something happens, or you notice it about to happen.
Axles are cheap, ebay style.
Keep an eye on the clips on the yokes, I lose them all the time.

If it becomes a problem, you can upgrade to CVD's

What it means is that you are getting to much power to the ground, lol.

canadiannascar is right, the stock parts are pretty cheap and metal CVD's are a great option.

But, you can also try backing off your slipper clutch a bit. It is supposed to absorb the excess power when there is to much throttle and not enough wheel spin. If you are twisting your axles, you are also stressing the other drive train components at the same time. You transmission is probably taking a beating as well.

Give it a quarter turn counter clockwise and it might save you a bit of aggrivation down the road, lol.
