The Castle Creations Mamba XLX 2 1/5 Scale Sensored Brushless ESC is a product guaranteed to redefine the limits of large scale R/C. Though it shares the name of its predecessor, the Mamba XLX, this is an ESC that lives in a class of its own.   


Reengineered from the ground up, the Mamba XLX 2 is packed with a potent combination of design, hardware and software advancements that will set a new standard for large-scale power systems. Designed for 1/5 Scale models weighing up to 42 lbs, the XLX 2 is an incredible power upgrade for the Losi DBXL-E and Super Rock Rey, Arrma Kraton 8S and Outcast 8S, or Traxxas X-Maxx models! If you are looking for the ultimate upgrade for your speed run, drag racing or off road rigs - the XLX 2 is a true heavyweight, with no contenders.

CRYO-DRIVE: MORE POWER – COOLER TEMPS – LONGER RUNS
Castle’s latest break-through technology, minimizes the amount of time the ESC’s electrical components spend generating heat. These software advancements work in parallel with a unique open housing design to allow increased directional airflow to cool critical components. With the integration of a 50mm fan and a forged elliptical fin heatsink, the design maximizes airflow through the system, taking thermal performance to the next level. The results are cooler ESC temperatures, increased runtime and more power handling. 

NOTE: Some vehicles may require aftermarket parts to allow ESC and/or motor fitment.

So far not too happy with it, this is my second one in the last month, its paired with the 2028 1100kv, last one popped and quit working, this one caught fire and ruined 2 good batteries. It's in the outcast 8s exb , 27/39 gearing

Another good purchase from amain , good delivery time for overseas . A good step up in esc from the mmx8s, considerably bigger in footprint but so much more capable than its little brother . Easy to program with the castle link . Runs cool . No motor wire or bullets included as per stated in the included items .

Love the product! Hate paying $30 less then a brand new one. When you send a esc in for repair that just simply won't power up. No fire no nothing. Probably a simple fix an sell for what I bought brand new 1 for almost. It's all part of the hobby but that's steep for a supposed repair

Castle Creations Mamba XLX 2 1/5 Scale Sensored Brushless ESC
When I bought my UDR a couple years ago, I didn’t swap out the motor and esc the day I got the truck like I always do anytime I’m forced into buying an RTR because it’s only available that way, but it happens to be a model that I think is cool enough to buy anyway. There also has to be a good amount of aftermarket support and upgrade parts available on the market to upgrade as many of the cheap parts that RTR’s come with as possible, which sometimes can make a stock out of the box RTR that isn’t very fun and turn it into something far better, more durable and much better in every performance category. Normally I immediately install a Futaba receiver so I can run my 7pxr, I use either a Protek 170 series servo or a Tekin servo, and all my 1/8 sized stuff get a Tekin esc/motor combos. When I picked up the UDR, I grabbed the 170TBL servo and new receiver, but didn’t know what size motor I wanted which is why I waited. I ran around 20 6s packs through the truck in the first few months, then I moved on to building new kits and put the UDR away for a while. I fianally decided that the xlx2 and the 1650kv 1717 motor was the setup I wanted, as I knew that the truck needed 8s because of its excessive weight and inefficient and heavy drivetrain. All I can say after a couple outings with it is dang, this setup is no joke. Really has far more speed and power than the truck can use, it just sends 10 foot roosts of gravel and dirt anytime you stab the throtte at any speed. Overall I’m super happy and should have done this setup the day it was available…

One of the best decisions I’ve ever made, I bought this esc to put in my xo-1, and man, let me tell you, it’s overkill, great purchase from Amain Hobbies. I currently run it with a TP1680kv motor on 4s 5000mah 70c, and it teleports.

Castle Creations Mamba XLX 2 1/5 Scale Sensored Brushless ESC
So far so good no spontaneous eruptions. I connect QS8 connections and with the 800kv motor geared with a 40T pinion on my Kraton 8S it's cool. No aftermarket cappack as well. Just plug and play. All good no problems just being careful and watching temps. Having fun is the goal. Be wise and just respect your toys!
