Default Transmission sound on micro-t... is it bad?

my micro-t seems to make a weird transmission sound, like something vibrating or scraping almost, i usually hear it when i let go of the throttle completley and the car slows down, anyone know what it is and if its bad? or do i just need to lube up the transmission a little,also, it didnt do it the first 2 days i had it.

Dont actually break it. Just drive it a little less hard then you normally would. Just so everything wears right. then after about 5 runs you should be ok to go, your normal driving speed. Heck Pin it!!!

It turned out that the funny sound (griding/squealing) was caused by the motor pinion scraping against the gear cover---thanks to my friend, Mr. Dremel, the sound is all gone
