I wish I could get to hear it. Supposed to get more freakin snow tonight/tomorrow. I am really tired of driving the 4X4 around. Sheesh, what a winter here this year! I know that it has always rained when I washed my cars, now I know if I buy a car in the winter, it is sure to be snowy well into spring time! Sorry for the whining, I am losing it!

This post is driving me crazy. I have asked all of the experts on Vettes I have ever run into and nobody has the definitive answer. I know it is normal and I know if I stomp it I don't hear it.....I know it was on the video..... if a Chevy engineer is lurking PLEASE just let us know what this is. I only want to identify the source so I can then ignore it. Is that too much to ask?

The noise is from the "looseness" in the transmission, more specifically from the midshaft that is necessary in the transaxle design. It is a tad louder in some cars than others, but all have the noise to some degree. It's due to disengaging and then reengaging the midshaft.
