This is the Castle Creations Sidewinder SV3 WP 1/10 ESC and Brushless Motor Combo, including a Neu-Castle 1406 4600kV Brushless and Sensored Motor. Castle’s Sidewinder ESC is now waterproof! The Sidewinder 3 can power crawlers on water filled trails, AWD's in rain soaked parking lots, and SCT's on adventures through muddy fields. Drivers can now give in to those irresistible urges to drive in the mud or rip through puddles without damaging their ESC.

Designed for 1/10th
The Sidewinder 3 is a great fit for 1/10th off-road, on-road, and rock crawlers running up to 3S LiPo. It features updated circuitry for faster response time and improved reliability. As always, the Sidewinder 3 offers industry-leading software functions and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter (sold separately).

Castle Creations Sidewinder SV3 Waterproof 1/10 ESC/Motor Combo (4600kV)
its a really good motor. the only thing is if your running any NIMH batteries make sure that you buy either the castle field link programmer card or the castle Bluetooh link. because you have to turn off the auto lipo mode off to run any NIMH batteries. but its a very good and powerful motor. just make sure your clutch pads are in really good shape because if your don't there wont be any thing left of the clutch pads. i didn't check to see the shape my pads were and i didn't check the clutch either which was my bad. this motor is a beast that it would wheelie in the dirt sand and i have even had it wheelie where pine needles covered the ground. think about how hard it is to wheelie on pine needles. i was shocked when it did that.

It's an okay combo unit. Down low it stutters so I wouldn't recommend for crawling. Get a fan for it too; fanless it potentially will over heat on you. Additionally the on / off switch isn't working for me anymore so I'm having to contact Castle's support. Have had less than a month. Less than a dozen small backyard sessions. I think I would have been happier with a HobbyWing EZRun or a QUICRUN 10BL120 ESC. Live and learn :)
