The Castle Sidewinder SV4 12.6V Waterproof 1/10 ESC builds upon Castle’s most popular platform, the Sidewinder 1/10 series. The ESC is the first of its kind to run Castle’s CRYO-DRIVE technology that combines technology from cutting-edge hardware and software advancements to increase thermal performance. Cooler temps mean longer runs and more power! The Sidewinder 4 is a versatile ESC and is a great choice for short course, on road  and monster truck applications when paired with the correct motor, as well as rock crawlers when used in brushed mode.

This combo includes a Sidewinder 4 ESC and 1410-3800Kv sensored motor. The 1410-3800kv is ideal for short course trucks running on 2s LiPo and weighing up to 6.5 lbs; it can be run on a 3s LiPo with very conservative gearing. It is a cool running torque animal for lighter 1/10th scale 2WD stadium trucks and buggies running up to a 3s LiPo.

  • 2s - 3s LiPo; 6 - 8 cell NiMH use in vehicles up 6.5lbs with battery, ready-to-run

  • 5.0 volts fixed, 2 amps Peak BEC

*Product Use Statements: Although Sidewinder 4 is waterproof, it is not intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. They can corrode when exposed to corrosive materials, such as salt water. Always rinse the ESC with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the controller may be waterproof, Castle recommends users confirm that the rest of their vehicle, including the batteries, servos, radio and chassis are also waterproof before exposing them to liquids of any kind.

Tech Notes:

  • Not all LiPos are created equal, and surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack’s suitability for a brushless application. Use the CONTINUOUS C rating only. Brushless setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks. Castle strongly suggests using 5,000mAh or larger LiPo cells with a discharge rating of at least 30C (or high quality 25C batteries). Castle suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells. Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups.
  • Please refer to the Castle Gearing Chart for recommended motor, battery and gearing for some of the more popular vehicles on the market.

Castle Creations Sidewinder SW4 Waterproof 1/10 ESC/Motor Combo w/1410 (3800kV)
Amain shipped within 2 hours of me placing the order. I installed this system on my stock rustler on 2s. This has torque for days, almost to much. I definitely recommend this combo. I now need to replace everything to handle this power, broke a driveshaft after 6 or 7 runs and wore out the rear bearings.

Castle Creations Sidewinder SW4 Waterproof 1/10 ESC/Motor Combo w/1410 (3800kV)
This is a really nice system From Castle. It is like next level power system for just about any 1/10 scale RC. I used this system on my highly modified 2wd slash and it works like a charm. I own just about every power system from Castle Creations. The ability to program this system is unmatched. I have other brands and even the cheap Chinese ones but as for me I will only use Castle electronics. I have at least 15 RC’s and I build them to exceed the their maximum potential. I have only ever had one of their motors burn up on me, but this was because I was not using it as it was designed. High kv ratings on bashers just don’t last long. I will be replacing my old sidewinder 3’s with this model.

Great value, programming is a little bit of a pain (changing max throttle for when I'm driving compared to when my daughter is driving). 4 Castle combo I've bought and I'll continue to buy them whenever I need then
