Mamba Micro X2, 16.8V, WP SENSORED ESC

Product #: 010-0169-00

The Mamba Micro X2 is a refresh of our popular 1:18 scale Mamba Micro X. This new ESC increases the maximum input voltage to 4s. We also added DATA LOGGING and our CRYO-DRIVE™ TECHNOLOGY; CryoDrive allows the ESC to run cooler and more efficiently at partial throttle.  Like its predecessor, it is waterproof* and has SENSORED MOTOR SUPPORT. This is the perfect upgrade for 1:18th scale 2WD or 4WD vehicles up to 2.25 lbs. The Mamba Micro X also works well in some 1:10th scale crawlers for low speed operation (no rock racing/hill climbing). You can now purchase the Mamba Micro X2 Crawler Edition ESC paired with our Slate Crawler motors.

Important Product Update, 6/14/2023.
The internal BEC is back! All Micro X2s made on or after June 2023 will again have the internal BEC. You can check the date of manufacture on the side of the ESC box or on the ESCs receiver wire. ESCs made between August 2022 and May 2023 do not have an internal BEC and include an external 10-amp CC BEC; click here for more information.

Data-Logging
Enabled by default, the Mamba Micro X2 captures and records performance data from your vehicle. This allows you to view a detailed turn-by-turn record of what your ESC actually experienced during the run. You will be able to record real-time data such as motor RPM, ESC and motor temperature, throttle input, and more. Download and analyze the collected data via Castle Link and make adjustments to maximize both performance and battery life.

Quick Tip: You can use the Quick Connect Duo (sold separately) to allow you to access both wires into a single Castle Link connection.

I run the micro X to on three different crawlers, two have centerless out runners and one has a sensored Eno run’er. All of the systems are buttery smooth and I love the tuning the castle link offers.
