This motor and ESC combo is designed for 1/6, 1/7 and 1/8 scale vehicles running up to 8S batteries and weighing up to 18 lbs. If you have been looking for the ultimate combo to propel your rig without sacrificing power, punch, or speed - this is an ideal option.This allows use in a wider variety of models, without modifications to your chassis. The MAMBA MONSTER X 8S utilizes Castle's breakthrough technology, CRYO-DRIVE.
By reducing the rate at which the ESC heats up and removing heat more efficiently, your setup will be able to handle higher gear ratios, in heavier vehicles, with longer runs. These software advancements work in parallel with a unique open housing design to allow increased directional airflow to cool critical components. With the integration of a 40mm cooling fan and a forged elliptical fin heatsink, the design maximizes airflow throughout the system, taking thermal performance to a whole new level. The ESC was designed with a robust aluminum casing, and the epoxy potting guarantees protection around the circuitry and ensures all-weather use.Mamba Monster X 8S is a beast, ready to take on the harshest of environments and still perform. You can easily optimize the ESC for any driving condition, from rugged terrain to smooth pavement to the perils of rock and gravel. Create, save and download setup profiles through the Castle Link Programming Suite on your Windows PC, or wirelessly with the convenience of the B-Link Bluetooth Adapter and Castle Link app for Android or iOS. SmartSense mode uses the motor's sensors to start the rotation, delivering smooth starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability.
Once the motor is spinning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle's ultra-efficient sensorless mode. You'll put more power to the ground, where it should be, instead of wasting it through raw heat and RPMs. Input Voltage Range 2S-8S LiPo. Sensorless, Sensored and SmartSenseT Running Modes.
Powerful Integrated 8A Peak Adjustable BEC (5.25V-8.0V). CRYO-DRIVET Technology minimizes the amount of time the ESC's electrical components spend generating heat, resulting in improved thermal performance during partial throttle operation where the majority of driving occurs. ESC is housed in a rugged CNC aluminum case and potted in waterproof epoxy to protect the electronics and promote efficient heat transfer. Premium forged heatsink with elliptical fins for superior air flow and increased heat dissipation. Oversized factory equipped thermally controlled 40MM cooling fan.BUS2 Telemetry Link and Futaba T4PX and T7PX transmitters. Waterproof design for all weather conditions. Data logging capability to capture and record performance data from your vehicle. Auxiliary wire functionality for "on-the-fly" adjustments using your transmitter. Audible alerts for easy diagnosis of common issues such as motor-over-temperature and low-voltage cutoff. Convenient transmitter programming for six common adjustable settings including cutoff voltage and drag brake. Easily tune and update ESC with USB and BluetoothT programming options. High-strength, high-temperature grade neodymium sintered magnets combined with High-strength Kevlar wrap ensures the integrity of the rotor is not compromised during harsh running conditions. Oversized NMB bearings and vibration dampening system ensure the longest bearing life possible. Proprietary winding techniques allow Castle to produce a stator assembly that is the lowest possible resistance, resulting in a cooler running motor.
Updated modern and sleek design; looks as cool as it performs. IMPROVED 4-POLE 12-SLOT design boasts exceptional EFFICIENCY and produces LESS HEAT. QUIETSENSET technology shields the sensors from magnetic field noise generated from the motor coils and keeps your motor and ESC in sync at all times. Use of a Flux ShieldT in conjunction with secondary Sense Magnets delivers even HIGHER PRECISION and MORE EFFICIENT startups.
OPTIMIZED design eliminates the need for mechanical timing adjustments. This sensor alignment method delivers uniform timing and torque in both directions, automatically.

Telemetry Link Capable: Yes, with Castle Creations Telemetry Link for S. BUS2 and Futaba T4PX and T7PX transmitters. Recommended battery capacity for 1:6th scale vehicles is 5000mah. Castle recommends using 50C continuous discharge or higher LiPo batteries. Surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack's suitability for a brushless application. Castle recommends a high current connector designed for high-powered electric systems, rated for 100+ amps, such as Castle CC Bullet 6.5mm, CC Bullet 8.0mm, or 6.5mm Polarized Castle Connectors. Applying voltages higher than 33.6V will cause irreparable damage to ESC. Although Mamba Monster X 8S is waterproof, it is NOT intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. Always rinse the ESC with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. The cooling fan must be removed prior to driving in wet conditions.
Monitor motor temperatures closely; overheating a motor will cause permanent damage to the magnets. Never exceed 180° F on the motor or ESC. The sensor board is coated with silicone conformal coating to protect the sensors from moisture. The sensor connections are not water resistant; water can cause signal loss which could result in loss of sensored capabilities.Castle recommends applying dielectric grease to the outside of the sensor wire connections after installation of the wire. Routine maintenance is recommended after running in wet conditions.
