So, could be the transmission or could be the transfer case if it is a Quadratrac...
Drivetrain binding will in fact, slow it down, especially on hard, dry surfaces. I have personally experienced this with a number of rigs. Something as small as a soft tire will cause one axle to drag. This is why they installed a diff in the t case.
The t case clutches (cones actually) can't "slip" in the sense your speaking of, only bind, and this problem is most prevalent on cornering and comes in the form of a banging or popping noise as the diff relieves the windup in the drivetrain..
