If you are willing to drive to East Peoria, I'll find the cause... but that'* a few hours.

First of all, check the oil level in the nosedrive. It should be flush to the bottom of the threaded hole.

Secondly, follow the troubleshooting steps in my link above.

no, it is not as loud as the video makes it seem, actually that is about as loud as it gets when i first start it, but when i took the video, i barely heard the noise
it is noticable when i am in the driver seat
I am checking the oil tonight

You'll need a 4.5mm allen head wrench to open the oil plug.
