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.
The Mamba Monster 2 ESC is capable of 2S LiPo to a maximum of 6S LiPo and is waterproof, which means you can run your vehicle through the morning dew, across the soggy snow or just about anywhere else you’d be interested in running a 1/8th scale RC buggy or truck.
