Exclamation My GSX sounds like an RC car

Hey all, just wondering if you guys can give me your opinion on whats the problem with my car.
I just recently purchased a 95 five-speed GSX, everything seems to be in order after doing all the maintenance work except for the strange whining that comes from the transmission.

Notes:
-Whining noise is always there as long as im driving 15mph plus. usually mid gear.
-The sound is actually pretty loud but it decreases and increases as im driving.
-I noticed it decreases as Im slowing down.
-The whining is still there when im in neutral

BTW I just did a full trans flush and filled her up with fresh Red Line synthetic. My only hypothesis on this problem is possibly a bad bearing in the transfer case?

Re: My GSX sounds like an RC car

Mine made that same sound. By the third day my tranny died, it wouldnt budge. When i inspected it i had a crack in the housing, and all the fluid dumped. When i went to take off my transfer case, the output shaft came with it. Besides sounding like an rc car, it would pop out of 5th gear sometimes. Stop driving it immediately if you want to salvage the transmission.

Re: My GSX sounds like an RC car

I just rebuilt my AWD in the 95, new bearings, races, shimmed correctly, and my trans whines, mainly on decel. Seems to be running fine so far with 3k miles on it. It is getting quieter, however now im concerned. If its popping out of gear, the bearings could be shot and the shafts are pulling away from each other, or your missings teeth on a gear and they will get sucked between other gears and ruin them as well.

Re: My GSX sounds like an RC car

Thats why I have mixed opinions on this issue since the transmission itself drives great. Shifts smooth, no grinds, no popping out of gear. So weird

Re: My GSX sounds like an RC car

Here is a perfect example,
vid on youtube with a car that sounds exactly like mine:

He later explained on how it was fixed: "The main gear on the countershaft was worn. I replaced that and reused the same input shaft and the whine is completely gone."
