    Hmmm...
    Check your slipper clutch
    Maybe set the 2nd gear to shift later?
    Also, try on road.

    I meant run on road, because tires grip better, so bald tires are going to have the same effect as running on dirt.

    Tighten you slipper clutch. It's the nut that is in the middle of your spur gear. You don't want to over tighten it though....
