Sidewinder 8th Sport 1:8th Scale Combo with 1515B-2200Kv Motor
Product #: 010-0139-00
Affordable Waterproof Power System
Sidewinder 8th is our sport 1:8 scale waterproof* combo capable of 2-6S LiPo, with an 8 amp peak BEC. This is the perfect upgrade for 1:8 scale buggies, truggies and on-road vehicles as well as 1:10 scale monster trucks weighing up to 11 lbs. It can also work as a great upgrade for some 4WD short course trucks for 3s or 4s operation. It also comes standard with a highly efficient ESC cooling fan.
This combo includes the Sidewinder 8th ESC and our 1515B-2200Kv motor featuring the same internal design as the award-winning Neu-Castle 1515-2200Kv motor.
