Airgate Media Guy: Do you drive all...I mean do you actually drive all of these or...?
Snake: Well, I play with them and I cherish them.
Airgate Media Guy: Mmm-hmm.... what’s this?
Snake: That's the new Castle 9,000 kv motor. That's the top of the 1/10th scale heap right there. There's no question about it. Look at the, look at the speed in that one....
Airgate Media Guy: How much does this go for?
Snake: $99.00 MSRP. Fantastic engineering in that one, just listen to those bearings. Can you feel the bond on those Neo magnets? Nobody else can do that.
Airgate Media Guy: What?
Snake: These Castle motors can spin to more than 100,000 rpm, everybody else's magnets just want to sail off the shaft at that kind of speed. Not Castle's. Look...see...still got the uh...the ol' tagger on it...see...I've never even run it.
Airgate Media Guy: You just bought it and....
Snake: Don't touch it! Don't touch it! No one...no one...no! Don't touch it.
Airgate Media Guy: Well uh I wasn't...uh I wasn't gonna touch it...I was just pointing at it...I....
Snake: Well don't point, even. This 9,000 kv motor is very special because, as you can see, it goes to 9,000.
Airgate Media Guy: Wait, most guys can't handle the 7,700.

Airgate Media Guy: Does that mean the 9,000 is faster? Is it any faster?
Snake: Well, it's 1,300 times your volts faster, isn't it? You multiply the KV number times the number of volts in your pack to see what the the motor RPM will be. So a 2S 7,700 setup is roughly 2 x 4 volts x 7,700. That's 61,600 rpm. A 2S setup with a 9,000 is 2 x 4 x 9,000 which... Remember your sums? Well its 72,000 rpm. It's not the 7,700, which you couldn't handle, it's now 9,000 that nobody can handle.
Airgate Media Guy: Yeah....
Snake: When your car is already too fast...where can you go from there? Where?
Airgate Media Guy: I don't know....
Snake: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is if we need that extra...push over the cliff...you know what we do?
Airgate Media Guy: Pick up a Castle 9,000. Put a 9,000 in it?
Snake: 9,000. Exactly. 1,300 x your volts faster.
Airgate Media Guy: What controller can you use?
Airgate Media Guy: But everybody knows that the 7.700 are the fastest things out there on 2S, why aren't the 7,700s simply fast enough? Just make those the top of the Castle line up?
Snake: ...these go to 9,000. You see, most...most blokes, you know, will be driving at 7,700. You're at 9,000.
