Default gear loudness in my triple X-s

i have a question, my car seems to be running very loud. i have all the ball bearings and i greased the gears but somehow its really loud. i have the same car as my friend and his is a lot quieter, yet he doesn't know how he made it so quiet. how can i solve this problem? what do i need to adjust?

Your spur gear is missing a tooth or two.
Get a new Spur gear.
I had same problem, but i ran it anyways, and endup with spur gear with no tooth at all.

Or the gear mesh is just too tight. Mine sounded like a tea pot when I had the mesh too tight.

On a side note- If you replace the gear, 64pitch gears are quiter than what comes on the car stock. Your friend may have 64 pitch.

I can almost guarantee you that the pinion/spur mesh is too tight. You want to be able to "wiggle" the spur gear slightly against the pinion. Check out the owners manual as it explains this with pictures.

Also, you may have damaged the spur and possibly even the pinion. You may want to replace them. Yes, 64 pitch gears will be quieter, but the car should still be pretty quiet even running 48 pitch.
