BB's in a tin can sound. They said to expect it.

I know they said on the intro video that the sound while shifting from 1st to 2nd is expected but I have never heard EXACTLY what is causing it or if can be dampened/eliminated. I thought it was happening a little at idle the other day.........maybe. My hearing is not the best and I am now used to it after 2000 miles but would just like to understand what makes the sound. Has anybody done away with it through a mod?

PS The pic in my signature is the scan of the Z06 poster foldout from the Automobile Car of the Year announcement.

Yes I have noticed it while shifting out of 1st, but it is not very loud and is short lived. Nothing in neutral at idle.
