new pinion is verry loud?

I have a traxxas bandit that has been overgeared with a 23/90 and finally got a 18t pinion, it is the same pitch but is black.

The traxxas number for it is TRX1918
don't know about old one but it was a silver/grey look.

after changing em out it is loud, at some points you think its a nitro idleing away.
I have done the same thing when I installed the 23 which what the paper test between the gears.

Why is this, is it a different metal?

Is your Bandit purchased new or used? If the latter, perhaps the previous owner fit a different pitch spur gear, so the original one won't fit. Can you post pictures of the gears, like old pinion next to new pinion, both standing up on the teeth, and a picture also showing the gear mesh?
