The biggest thing you can do to quiet down a TC3 is have the correct gear mesh. There are other factors that will affect the sound but nothing as much as a correct gear mess. Honestly, I didn't notice a difference in sound when I switch over to 64 pitch. Running a good spur gear will have a small effect on sound. RW seem the quietest to me.
To be honest, I actually prefer the noice of a shft car versus the stealth of a belt. With the noise, it's easier to hear if something is wrong with the drivetrain as you are running.
