Any ideas as to why a tightened slipper clutch would make a loud noise when I hit the throttle now? Don't want to burn anything up.

Maybe you stripped the diff gears or spur gear mesh is too tight.

Mesh is too tight? Like. . . There should be a bit of play? I am stupid. But I just got an adjustable motor mount and will probably fiddlestick up meshing things. I bet there is a video for that too. . So nvm.
I like the auto censor feature on this forum. Thanks, bot!

Record the noise and we can help you better. When you hit the throttle too hard the slipper clutch is supposed to slip and makes a distinctive whining sound. If you tighten it too much, it creates too much stress and the slipper screw breaks loose. After that, the slipper clutch slips all the time and you will hear that whining sound from any kind of throttle. If it's not a whining sound, you broke something else.

I wouldn't run it then, there's a good chance you're grinding something up. Again, a video with sound would help. But it sounds like you're going to have to open it up to find out. Check for stripped teeth on the pinion, slipper clutch, spur gear, differential gear.

I'll put up a video later.

My phone only takes mp4 and I can't send the video in that format
