    If I had to guess he is talking about the mount to the chassis of a nitro. When it was re-tightened the gear mesh was incorect (too tight). If you use a piece of paper inbetween the spur and the clutch bell then tighten it down you should have the correct mesh. Basically just slide the engine away from the spur gear a "TINY" bit. That should cure ya.

    Yes, it still makes a weird buzz noise I took a buggy blast and blasted it and the noise went away for a while then came back
