Default Re: subtle "rod knock" like sound, but the pattern is wrong

Alas, the brake trick didn't stop the sound. The lugs were tight also.

I lifted the front wheels off the ground and as best as I can tell, the sound seems to come from the transmission.

Two videos.... the first, mid throttle in neutral. The second,.mid throttle in 4th gear (around 30mph on the speedo).

Additional data: Trans fluid not full, but high in the OK zone on the dipstick, and it looks clean. Last filled around 40k miles ago with Amsoil Torque Drive when I replaced my transaxle.
