Any idea what the high pitch whine is?

I'm not talking about VSP. I turned that off the first chance I had. What I'm talking about is the high pitch, single frequency noise you hear when you cruise at slowish speeds with the windows down. The frequency never changes, and it is always audible, whether braking, accelerating, or cruising. <10mph it seems to not be there. But 10mph - 30mph is the worst.

I didn't notice it at first, but now its all I hear when I drive. I don't even want to roll the windows down when I am driving slow. It's awful.

Honestly, if you don't know what I'm talking about, then don't try to listen for it. Once you hear it once, you cant escape the noise!

I noticed you're still working with polymers.
