Its a hell of a lot quieter than my neighbor’s truck.

I described the sound initially like the sound I think you’d hear if the inner race of a bearing was slipping scooting along the metal shaft of which it should fit snugly. So maybe throw out bearing on the trans snout does make sense, and there’s some concern for the aluminum housing wearing.

But why does it only do it on faster launch and not the softer launch when the clutch is more slowly engaged?
