From the Manufacturer
The Mamba Monster is finally here! Long rumored, occasionally seen at trade shows, Castle’s elusive 1/8th scale Mamba Monster Brushless ESC is finally available to the public. Castle has used all of their tricks to deliver stunning power for monster trucks and 1/8th buggy conversions. The Mamba Monster handles up to 6S LIPO input (25.2 Volts MAX). It has a switching BEC circuit onboard to provide plenty of power for your receiver and servos. Don’t worry about the amp rating, nothing even comes close to the real world performance of the Castle controllers, and Mamba Monster is no exception. We’ve hit 60 mph with RC vehicles that have absolutely no business doing 60 mph. (And we were doing it in a 20 mph zone!). Mamba Monster is designed to keep its self cool while it pounds your truck. Castle refused to cut corners on the design or the components, the electronic and thermodynamic fundamentals are right to begin with. Castle then wrings a bit more power out by using a high efficiency heat sink PLUS an integrated cooling fan to make sure you finish the race. Thermals are for the other guys. Mamba Monster ESCs come with huge 6.5mm gold plated bullet connectors for reliable power transfer and simple installation. We’ve even thrown in a Castle Link USB adapter* so you can tame the Monster by adjusting the really useful settings using your Windows PC. Neu-Castle 2200 KV – Intended for up to 6S (25.2 Volt) operation. Incredible in monster trucks with up to 6S lipo packs (4s lipo is the sweet spot), and works great in 1/8 Truggies as well. The 2200 is 75mm long making it capable of handling more power than the 2650. This one is the bad boy! The efficiency of a motor determines its quality. Higher efficiency means better design and high quality components. The higher the efficiency of the motor the more power it can produce before it overheats. Mamba Monster systems typically pull 4,000-5,000 watts (5 to 6 horsepower) under acceleration
This 1/8th scale ESC/Motor Combo from Castle really packs a punch!
