DISCONTINUED.
Check out the Sidewinder 3.

Better. Stronger. Faster.

All good things Castle generally get replaced with something even better from Castle.

The venerable Sidewinder 1/10 ESC is being upgraded by the all new, 40% more powerful, Sidewinder Sv2. Of course this ESC includes all of the great Castle programmability and durability. Here's the best part, we're able to bring it to the market with even lower pricing than its predecessor! The Sidewinder Sv2 ESC runs only $79.95, and the combos paired with our great 36mm motors are only $164.95.

The Sidewinder Sv2 is the perfect choice for upgrading 1/10+ 2wd and 4wd vehicles weighing 5 lbs or less to quality brushless power and speed.

*As the controller can handle more power than previous Sidewinder, the motor lineup is now expanded to include the CM36 6900kv and CM36 7700kv motors.

*3s (12.6 volts fully charged LiPos). The Sv2 can handle a maximum of 12.6 volts. Your motor may have a separate rating. Always use the lower of the motor or controller's voltage ratings.

**Recommendations are for each use with stock gearing. Should users change the gearing, they MUST check the motor and controller for over temps on the first run(s).

Important note for use with 6900kv and 7700kv motors: stock gearing should not be used with these motors. See the Castle Motor Gearing chart for more information.
