Default RE: rustler 2.5 making clacking noise

i can't seem to pinpoint it, and I've got professionally trained ears. It kinda sounds like it's coming from the clutch area, but I can't be sure. It also seems to do it when you start it, and then it dies down alot once the engine is running, but the ez start doesn't make the noise by itself. Compression on the motor seems good, I checked the bearings and the bushings (i've had it apart) and they seemed good. There was no sign of unusual wear in the engine, and the bushings had no play in them. the bearings were smooth and corosion free, so I'm a bit stymied.
