I'm having the same problem too. It might be one of Searchlight Simulation's assets because it was like that before I downloaded this patch when I went from N1 to N2 too early. It'll make a screeching nose when the Amps are > 810. What I did notice is that; before this patch, going from N1 to N2 below 10MPH, the amps would rise to 912 and stay there until you're faster than 10mph. However, with the patch, it'll rise to 932 then dip down to around 405 and then rise back up until 15mph then the screeching stops after 17mph.
