i own an HPI Nitro RS4 RTR 3+ and i just switched my motor from my offroad car into the RS4.

The engine is an O.S. .18 CR-V

the problem i have is it sounds like when i am accelerating there is a metal clicking type noise and it makes the car slow down but i dont know how to fix this problem

When engine is at idle, do you hear that sound? If not then it sounds like a differential of clutch bell problem to me...I believe it has nothing to do with the engine.
