I think it is normal, I do the same thing and the other wheel doesn't spin. I would pull off your trany cover and make sure your gears aren't striped and it has enough grease. Even though it does that it will still run fine.

R/C kid if it runs fine its ok
when you spin the tire make sure you hold
the spur gear the really big gear that is visible from the outside of the car. with the body off. If the engine is not running
the cluch dissangages and the spur gear spins
because there is no load on it. i thought something was the matter with mine until i figued it out http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Yes, this is normal. The Nitro Sport is not Posi-track, which means that both tires do not spin at the same time. If you notice that when you try to turn over your motor and your tires are turning, you might want to take a look at the clutch and the clutch spring.

it is normal as long as it will run properly on the ground, don't worry about it.
