This "chatter" is completely normal, its just what the front driveshafts do when turned far.

This question and video gets posted almost monthly lol

It is simple physics. That is how a universal joint works at extreme angles. The angle in the TRX4 is actually too extreme for the U joint and it is bottoming out. It will wear in with time. Watch this video for a demonstration.

This is why I search out forums when I'm getting into something new, it's the shared experience forums collect that makes them so valuable. Cause yeah, I got a TRX4 chattering, I'm like "WTF?" and in a few moments I've got several threads letting me know that what I'm hearing is likely no big deal, good stuff.
