Default Grinding sound?

So while driving today it started to whine like it was slipping or something. Not real sure what it is but it appears to be coming from the back end gears.

I have been looking all morning for parts for it. Does any one know where I can get a hold of parts for this?

DF01 Porsche Cayenne.

Does this kit use a slipper clutch? It may need tightening. Also check the meshing between your motor's pinion and the spur, that often causes that kind of noise if its gone out slightly.

Ebay and Rc-Recycle on E-bay. They have a full set of gears.

So it was a gear grinding. I used a flat head to get them to work but in reverse it still "jumps". I bought some new gears off ebay and will get those installed. Hope that is the issue.
