MAMBA X ESC W / 1512-1800KV SENSORED 1:8 E-BUGGY EDITION
Product #: 010-0155-06
The Mamba X represents the latest and greatest in Castle Creations Inc. ESC technology. Originally designed to overpower 1:10th scale buggies and trucks, the ROAR APPROVED Mamba X also delivers amazing race capabilities for 1:8th scale eBuggy. After being extensively race-tested by Castle Creations' Lead Mechanical Engineer and Team Driver, Taylor James - the Mamba X has been approved for eBuggy racing with two of our most popular 15 Series Motors.
This ROAR APPROVED combo is a Mamba X ESC and 1512 1.5Y 1800kv motor for lighter 1/8th scale applications. Normally this motor is paired with our 1/8th scale Mamba Monster X ESC; but if you need to save some weight or need a smaller footprint, the Mamba X is more than capable of running this motor. This setup is recommended for 3s or 4s use in a vehicle weighing less than ~9lbs and geared for no more than ~45 MPH. If you have a heavier vehicle, looking for more speed or just want to beat the ever loving snot out of your vehicle we would recommend picking up the Mamba Monster X combo (P/N 010-0145-05).

||Enabled by default, the Mamba X 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, battery current and voltage, 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. You can use the Quick Connect Duo (sold separately) to allow you to access both wires into a single Castle Link connection.|
The Mamba X allows “on-the-fly” adjustments to be made through the AUX wire once enabled in Castle Link. Once you have selected an AUX wire function, that setting can then be tuned from your transmitter while driving. Torque control, max throttle, max brake and drag brake adjustments are a sampling of the available modes. This real-time tuning allows you to quickly and easily fine-tune your system. .
