If its only happening in reverse id be looking at the gearbox for the problem. Particularly the reverse gear.

what engine and gearbox is it? someone who knows alot more than me will be along shortly.

Try engaging a forward gear then go straight into reverse, if it goes in without a crunch it could mean several things, wrong grade of oil in box causing drag, idle speed too high, oil on clutch plate again causing drag.

as rob said your clutch was dragging ,the reverse is a sliding idler gear on the lt77 and doesnt have baulk rings like r380 so clutch drag will cause symptoms as you had
