Easiest way to correct audio sync drift in Vegas?

I want to decouple the audio and video track of a clip and shift the audio track back two frames with respect to the clip. I can't figure out how to decouple the tracks. What am I missing?

Thanks... I figured out what I was doing wrong. I had to turn off auto-ripple, too. Else, whenever I moved the audio track, the video track moved with it.

I had a situation where I had audio from an Olypus Digital Voice Recorder WS-300M that while it will be in sync for the first 2 seconds, it will drift more out of sync the longer the audio clip is. At least to a point.

So, to get it in sync, I simply align the beginning of the Olympus audio with the other audio and then at the end of the Olypus audio I hold the CTRL key while draggin the end to match the other audio and it will be 99% in sync. There will be slight variations throughout the clip but it will be close enough.

The Olympus has a poor clock and that causes it not to stay in sync as the clip progresses.
