This is the Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro 1/10 Scale Brushless Car Package, with an included 5,600kV Neu-Castle 1406 sensorless motor.The Mamba Max Pro brings the best aspects of a sensored and sensorless ESC together to create the ideal controller for serious 1/10th scale enthusiasts. The Mamba Max Pro offers the ultimate in flexibility, and can be used with all 1/10 motors, sensored or sensorless. Some drivers need sensored operation because the racing world’s rules require it, but it is also nice because it offers better start up and braking performance. But the Mamba Max Pro is also compatible with sensorless motors for those who prefer the power, simplicity, reliability and efficiency of a sensorless system.

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.


  • SmartSense uses the motor sensors to start the motor and then it switches over to Castle’s ultra powerful and efficient dynamic sensorless mode which boosts motor efficiency. Simply put, you’ll get more power and less heat from your motor.
  • Sensored Only mode runs sensored motors using sensored timing only.
  • CHEAT MODE, Castle’s High Energy Advanced Timing allows users to electronically advance their sensored motor’s timing to extreme settings. This can often yield just that extra bit of power needed to win the race. Be careful – there’s never a free lunch, extra power comes with extra motor heat!
  • 6S (25.2 volts) max ESC input voltage, 3S max on motor
  • Switching BEC powers your radio and servo all the way up to the 6S max input. Users may select the output for any voltage between 5V and 7V.
  • Durable case and cooling fan to protect and cool the controller during hard off-road action
  • Ready to Run: Mamba Max Pro is ready to run out of the box.
  • Castle Link Compatible: Like all Castle controllers, the Mamba Max Pro may also be “tuned” for the drivers’ preferences in the throttle curve, brake strength, reversing modes and more. Access these features with the Castle Link USB connector (sold separately) and a PC for even more versatility.

Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro 1/10 Scale Brushless Car Package (5700kV)
This thing is INSANE!!

Got one three months ago, and besides the scorching hot operation (due to the tiny space inside my Lazer ZX5), this thing emanates power from everywhere!
Very simple programation with the Castle Link, extremely deep programation modes, and tremendous power. For off-road and club racing, this is the way to go!

Also, CC has the best service out there. Any problem will be dealt with incredibly fast.)

If you are having trouble with radio calibration make sure to update the firmware and then hit send updates to speedcontrol, my DX3R refused to calibrate the brake setting in till i did this.)

Yea, and sometimes you have to play with your trim dials to get the calibration to take.)

Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro 1/10 Scale Brushless Car Package (5700kV)
Bought this combo about 4 months ago. Used in a 10th scale buggy. Very glitchy and useless in racing. Tweaked every setting I could, with no luck in making this a controllable setup. Since this is a sensorless motor, I would stay clear, do not buy!)

This Mamba Max system is very powerful! Everyone who wants to make some upgrades to their rc car should seriously consider buying this combo. I have been running my buggy with these electronics for half a year and I am very satisfied. Although, you can find it a little cheaper on other websites, I suggest getting it from "A Main Hobbies" because of the good quality and quick handling and despatch. Be sure to update it regularly via Castle link (sold seperately) in order to experience more functions to your Mamba Max Pro esc!)

This system has been a nightmare for me!!! And I've been trying to get Castle by email and on phone and getting no where with them!!! Maybe someone can help me on here!!! The ESC cuts out as soon as I get hit or roll over. I have the castle link and It has sucked.
