This is the Castle Creations Sidewinder Sv2 1/10 12V Sport ESC/Motor Combo, with a Neu-Castle 1406 4600kV motor. All good things from Castle generally get replaced with something even better. The venerable Sidewinder 1/10 ESC is one of those items. The Sidewinder has been replaced by the 40% more powerful, Sidewinder Sv2. The Sidewinder Sv2 is the perfect choice for upgrading 1/10+ 2wd and 4wd vehicles weighing 5 lbs or less to quality brushless power and speed. Of course this ESC includes all of the great Castle programmability and durability, only now it has lower pricing than its predecessor!
Castle worked with motor guru Steve Neu to change the CM36 series motor from a slotless design to one with a 1.4 inch diameter slotted stator. He then changed the single neodymium rotor magnet from a 2 pole donut to a 4 magnet, four pole rotor for more torque. Throw in better manufacturing, high quality bearings and a removable end bell and you have the new 1406 series of high performance motors from Castle. The end result is an all new motor that cranks out 30% more torque with all the efficiency and endurance that Castle is known for.
