Putting the X in Extreme!

Mamba Monster X is our latest 1:8 scale and Monster truck controller capable of 2S - 6S LiPo (4s max with included 2650kv motor), with an 8 amp peak BEC - and, it’s waterproof*, so you can run your vehicle through morning dew, across soggy snow, or a muddy trail. This is the perfect upgrade for 1:8 scale buggies and on-road vehicles as well as 1:10 scale monster trucks weighing up 9 lbs. It also comes standard with a highly efficient, 30mm ESC cooling fan. Mamba Monster X also features updated AudibleAlerts that will notify you of possible issues with calibrations anderror conditions to help diagnose problems in the field.

The Auxiliary Advantage.
Mamba Monster X features the addition of a new, programmable Auxiliary Wire that allows you to make “on-the-go” adjustments to several settingssuch as torque control, and max throttle, and fine-tune the performanceof your ESC right from the transmitter using an auxiliary channel onthe receiver. The AUX wire function is disabled by default but isprogrammable via Castle Link. Once you have programmed the functionalityof the AUX wire, that setting can then be adjusted on-the-go from acompatible transmitter.

Sensored Motor Capable (with optional Sensor Harness)
Mamba Monster X can also run sensored brushless motors with the purchaseof an optional Sensor Harness. This sensored-motor capability opens up awhole new segment of R/C enthusiasts who will now get to experience a Mamba Monster X-equipped racer, rock racer, or rock crawler.

Data Logging
Mamba Monster X can capture and record performance data from your lastcouple of runs, commonly referred to as data logging. This data can bedownloaded via the Castle Link USB programmer; you can use the Quick Connect Duo (sold separately) to allow you to quickly access the ESC'sreceiver wire without having to disconnect from your receiver. You canthen analyze this data and make adjustments to the ESC to maximize bothperformance and battery life.

Telemetry Capability
Mamba Monster X is telemetry ready,which means owners of the Futaba T4PX Transmitters will be able to purchasethe Castle Creations Telemetry Link for S.BUS2. Real-time data such asESC temperature, voltages and RPM can be monitored to ensure performanceadvantages and spare you the “unknown” parameters that all R/Centhusiasts experience at some point. Telemetry data provides anotherlevel of protection and can increase performance.

Powerful Combination
This combo includes the Mamba Monster X controller and the Neu-Castle 1512-2650Kv motor, which features:

  • High quality oversized bearings
  • Sintered Neodymium magnets
  • Superior electromagnetic design
  • Rigorous quality control

*Not intended for operation while submerged in liquid. If unit is operated in wet conditions, rinse with fresh water to remove dirt or corrosives, then fully dry unit.

Items Needed for Operation: Battery Connector required, 6.5mm Castle Connectors are recommended.
Product Use Statements: *Although Mamba Monster X and Castle brushless motors are waterproof, they are not intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. They can corrode when exposed to corrosive materials, such as salt water. Always rinse the ESC and motor with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the motor and controller may be waterproof, we suggest users confirm that the rest of their vehicle, including the batteries, servos, radio and chassis are also waterproof before exposing them to liquids of any kind. **The cooling fan must be removed prior to driving in wet conditions. It is not waterproof.

Tech Notes:
  1. Mamba Monster X setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks and not all LiPos are created equal. Surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack's suitability for a brushless application. Recommended battery capacity for 1:8th scale vehicles is 5000mAh. We recommend using 30C continuous discharge or higher LiPo batteries (or high quality 25C batteries such as Traxxas® Power Cell).
  2. Our experience  suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells. Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups.
  3. Applying voltages higher than 25.2V will cause irreparable damage to ESC.
  4. We recommend a high-current connector designed for high-powered electric systems, rated for 70+ amps. Invest in connector sets made for high-powered electric systems such as our CCBULLET 6.5mm, Castle 6.5mm Polarized Connectors, Traxxas® Power Connectors, FlightPower Star™ Plug, or Deans® Ultra Plugs
