Default Rust on engine manifold

Hey everyone,

As you may already know I'm new to this forum. I love rc's especially trucks and cars. What I own right now are: Traxxas Revo 3.3 and a HPI EVO3 Mustang 1970. My question is how can I remove rust because I tried with a bit of CLR and it never worked :S... even when scratching the rust off with a knife. Any help is much appreciated.

Do I need to add any sort of chemicals with it so it can rub off?
