This is the Castle Creations Mamba Monster 1/8th Scale Brushless Car Package with the Neu-Castle 2200kV Brushless Motor. Castle has used all of their tricks to deliver tire shredding power for monster trucks and 1/8th buggy conversions. The Mamba Monster ESC handles up to 6S LIPO input (25.2 Volts MAX). It has a switching BEC circuit onboard to provide plenty of power for your receiver and servos. Don’t worry about the amp rating, nothing even comes close to the real world performance of the Castle controllers, and the Monster is no exception.
The Mamba Monster is designed to keep its cool while it pounds your truck. Castle refused to cut corners on the design or the components, the electronic and thermodynamic fundamentals are correct from the start. Castle then wrings a bit more power out by using a high efficiency heat sink PLUS an integrated cooling fan to make sure you finish the race.
Mamba Monster ESCs use huge 6.5mm gold plated bullet connectors for reliable power transfer and simple installation. Additionally, the Castle Link USB adapter allows you to tame the Monster by adjusting the settings using a Windows PC.
The Neu-Castle 2200kV is intended for up to 6S (25.2 Volt) operation. Incredible in monster trucks with up to 6S lipo packs (4s lipo is the sweet spot), and works great in 1/8 Truggies as well. The 2200 is 75mm long making it capable of handling more power than the 2650. This one is the bad boy! The efficiency of a motor determines its quality. Higher efficiency means better design and high quality components. The higher the efficiency of the motor the more power it can produce before it overheats. Here’s a little math. Say you are laying down 1,000 watts, (about 1¼ horsepower), and your motor is rated as being 70% efficient. That means 300 watts is being turned into heat. Ever grab a 300 watt light bulb? If the motor is 85% efficient it only burns 150 watts as heat. More power goes to the wheels and the motor runs cooler, making it capable of putting out even more power when needed.
It’s always better to reduce the heat generated in an electric power system with superior engineering, rather than to try and cool things with fans and other gimmicks. Sure, a fan can get you a few degrees, but it is much better to have a superior design to begin with.
NOTE: Castle Link USB cable is available separately. Software is available through www.CastleCreations.com

Everyone always wants to know top speed (including myself). What I'm learning is that top speed has to do with a million different variables. Motor, ESC, batteries, tires, conditions, weight, scale, etc. all are a factor. I can tell you this though. My buggy is almost out of sight after a few seconds anyway, so does it really matter? ;) Get this motor and you will NOT be sorry.
i have an emaxx. i used this system in it it runs great loved it, only thing is why is it 330$? i replaced this system with a hobbywing xerun 150a esc and a leopard 4282 motor. this is a far more powerful setup for under 200$ the leopard motor is bigger and every dimension and much miore powerful under heavy loads. the xerun esc is also more powerful and water resistant. unless u demand a combo or ur a die hard castle fan do urself a favor, do some research find the specs of different motors and companies ie leopard who make jsut as much stuff if not mroe than castle at the same reliability and qualty. only difference is leopard isnt as well known.
not bashing castle i love them to. just do a little research there are cheaper more powerful options out there, hope this helps.
What a difference from Nitro in this platform. The ESC never gets hot, fan hasn't had to do any work yet. Great Fun on the BMX track if like big air!!
Motor stays about 130 degrees continuos operation on a protek 5400mah 4s 35c lipo
