Brute Power and Sheer Stamina!

Castle Creations' introduction of the Mamba Monster was a break-through moment for R/C modelers wanting to experience what seemed to be unobtainable. Brute power and sheer stamina have made this our legacy “power up” for popular 1/8th scale buggies, truggies and on road vehicles and 1/10th scale monster trucks.

Mamba Monster 2 is capable of 2S LiPo to a maximum of 6S LiPo (4s maximum with included 2650kv motor). It's also waterproof*, so you can run your vehicle across the morning dew, through soggy snow, or just about anywhere else you’d be interested in running a 1:8 scale RC buggy or truck. It features an easy-access case allowing you to replace fans quickly, if necessary. Additionally, Mamba Monster 2 features solder posts, so changing battery wire length and direction is simple for an even more custom install.

Industry Leading Software Functions

The Mamba Monster 2 includes a coupon for a free Castle Link USB device. This allows access to the full programming suite of adjustable settings that tune and tweak your vehicle to your preferences, resulting in an incredible RC driving experience.

 Castle Link adjustable settings include:

  • Throttle
  • Braking curve
  • Drag brake
  • Auto LiPo cutoff
  • Punch Control
  • Reverse Type
  • Motor Type

  • High quality oversized NMB bearings
  • Sintered neodymium magnets
  • Superior electromagnetic design
  • Replaceable motor wires via Gold-Plated Solder Tabs
The included 1512-2650kv sensored** motor is intended for up to 4s operation in vehicles weighing less than 9lbs.

Product Use Statements: *Although Monster 2 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.

Telemetry Link Capable: No
Tech Notes: Not all LiPos are created equal, and surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack’s suitability for a brushless application. Use the CONTINUOUS C rating only. Mamba Monster setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks. We strongly suggest using 5,000 mAh or larger LiPo cells with a discharge rating of at least 30C (or high quality 25C batteries such as Traxxas® Power Cells®). Our experience suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells. Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups.
