When I break it sounds more like plastic snapping, but that's just me

In all seriousness, if you mean braking, then it's probably a driveline issue. More info about your setup as previously mentioned will help diagnose the issue.

its in my b4 i think it has something to do with the differential. And when i mean "Break" i mean the breaks that you use to stop the car not literally breaking the car.

You should start braking before you keep breaking

Check your rear bearings and make sure you lube your rear CVD's (if you have them)

Do you hear the same noise when you are accelerating? I would be surprised if it is your diff if only on braking.

A few things to try
1 - Check that your motor screws are tight and that the motor isn't moving when you brake.
2 - Take the pinion gear off and make sure the drivetrain moves freely in both directions
3 - If this is a brushed motor do a test with the pinion gear off on the workbench ad see if the motor is making the sound.

17.5 motors are known to make a clicking noise and more because or their torque.

The lower the KV the "clickier" the motor is but that is un-powered so no need to think about that
