Exclamation nitro evader st problems

my transmission is making some weird noises. when i accelerate it grinds. it sounds like plastic but idk what it is. if i stand in front of the car and accelerate the slipper engages and turns but makes the grinding noise. when there is no resistance it doesnt make the noise. Any help is appreciated!!!

Evader, I believe the Evader ST's basic format is similar to the older Maximum Pro ST. I know on the Maximums the slippers would make a nasty "chirppy" noise when they began to get warm. Not the most plesant noise. You can either live with the noise or you can change to a metal spur gear. At least that was the solution with the Maximum.

its not the slipper clutch. its new and both the slipper clutch plate and backer are in good condition. is there some kind of gear that might get worn down..or maybe low on grease??
