This 2200 kV rig was installed on a modified Traxxas Slash 4x4 chassis set up as an asphalt assault vehicle. Best speed to date has been 87 mph using 4s batteries, and it gets there very quickly. Track space has limited extreme speed exploration, but the Monster can use up to 6s power so the top speed is likely over 100 (if it stays on the ground!).
The Monster motor has enough power to light up the tires at 60, and enough torque to lift the Slash chassis into a spin at speed if you get carried away. Castle Creations claims it can produce up to 10 horsepower on 6s ... quite a bit for a 8-lb truck. The kit came ready to install, except for the battery connectors. These need to be soldered onto the huge 10-gauge ESC wires, in either straight or series configuration. Castle also has great customer support that includes an upgrade program.
If you want to make your 1:10 or 1:8 RC model go stupid fast, get one of these and then go find a BIG place to play!
The built in fan is an awesome feature, but even with my 4s setup, it only comes on once or twice while running it around. Unfortunately it isn't waterproof, but for me it isn't that big of a deal. I avoid running them in water to avoid rusting (the parts that aren't aluminum anyway). It maxes out on a 6s lipo setup, which is also awesome, but almost unnecessary... I do have a 6s setup for it, and as fun as it is... it snaps drive shafts almost daily. If you do decide to go with the 6s setup, invest in steel drive shafts. I bought the ones for my e-maxx, and have yet to break one (been bashing for over 3 months now).
This esc and motor combo completely DESTROYS the traxxas vxl system when it comes to performance. It maxes out at twice the voltage, and is far more tweakable. Even though it isn't waterproof like the VXL system, it will more than make up for it in the performance section.
If you're torn between this system and another, buy this one. You won't regret it! I mean, just look up youtube videos of the system! ;)

The motor is fabulous, but I have burned through 2 ESC's so far. This is not the seller's fault but the Made in China sign on the ESC is to blame. Read morePublished on July 7, 2012 by bobbyd
The best, if you run 1/8 scale RC cars you know this. Handles 6s lipo, doesn't get warm. Get the castle link to hook up to your computer so you can adjust it.Published on May 5, 2012 by bbuilderx
