Product Use Statements:
  • *Although Mamba X is waterproof, it is not intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. Always rinse the ESC and motor with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the motor and controller may be waterproof, Castle suggests 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.
  • **The cooling fan must be removed prior to driving in wet conditions. It is not waterproof.

Tech Notes:

  • Mamba X setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks and not all LiPos are created equal. Surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack's suitability for a brushless application. Recommended battery capacity for 1:10th and 1:8th scale vehicles is 5000mAh. We recommend using 30C continuous discharge or higher LiPo batteries (or high quality 25C batteries such as Traxxas® Power Cell).
  • Our experience suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells. Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups.
  • Applying voltages higher than 25.2V will cause irreparable damage to ESC.
  • We recommend a high-current connector designed for high-powered electric systems, rated for 70+ amps. Invest in connector sets made for high-powered electric systems such as our Castle 6.5mm Polarized Connectors, Castle 4.0mm Polarized Connectors, Traxxas® Power Connectors, or Deans® Ultra Plugs

NOTE: Water Resistant Motor Design: The sensor board is coated with silicone conformal coating to protect the sensors from moisture. The sensor connections are not water resistant; water can cause signal loss which could result in loss of sensored capabilities. Castle recommends applying dielectric grease to the outside of the sensor wire connections after installation of the wire. Routine maintenance is recommended after running in wet conditions. Please refer to the document in the resources tab for running and maintaining motors in wet environments.

I've run this setup in my Honcho on 3s for close to a year now with only one issue, the power switch. I really wish they would include a better sealed power switch. The ESC and motor are a really great combo.

Castle Creations Mamba X Waterproof Sensored Brushless Combo w/2280kV Slate
Awesome, the setup is 12t pinion and 3s. I just make some settings with the castle link and the start up is super smooth, I have more punch than my 550 21t with 13t pinion and 3s. The drag brake is fantastic. Plus it was very simple to calibrate and program. I will use my coupon to buy the programming card.
Actualization, the drag brake it's awesome. Nothing of the video showed on YouTube of the comparative with de Axe system. If you set it right the car will hold very strong

Castle Creations Mamba X Waterproof Sensored Brushless Combo w/2280kV Slate
Very awesome combo! Torque on startup is a bit weak especially under a lot of load(like every other sensored brushless system) but it does the job very well overall and lots of power for my TRX6! For now I'm sticking with stock 11t pinion, very fun to run the thing on 4s and go crazy with it and not have to worry about temp issues, and also at the same time run 3s and the combo drives super smooth and technical!
