It could be the thick metal shims on the idle gear shafts. They might be under strain and pressing against the bearings causing the squealing.

Anybody else seeing this?

Yeah, my gear cover was hit and and cracked which caused it to rub on the spur making the noise. hope that helps. Also if you are running a modded spur I have heard the gear momentarily rub. Just some suggestions.

I bet your getting cvd squeek or outdrive squeek at loaded high RPMs.. I chased thats very same every once in a while squeek when I ran the academy gv2 platform..never constant, but enough to make you check all your bearings ETC..a couple drops of light oil on the cvd's and outdrive slots and it disapeared...

CVDs (and hub bearings) are cleaned and re-greased before every race day.. so it isn't those. I have yet to tear into the gearbox housing however... I think it may be in there. Or... it could be the wear slots in the outdrives?

I was thinking the wear spots you mentioned in previous posts..the gv2's had soft outdrives and the squeek always started after there was some wear showing..when they were new/ungouged..not a peep.
