    Castle Mamba Monster X/1515-2200Kv motor combo

    I went and got this combo today from a LHS. They matched the price Castle is selling it for on their website,which I thought was cool. I only had a few issues with installation. First I couldn't get the 14t pinion off the stock BLX motor. I have a pinion puller but I couldn't use it because of...

    Castle Creations 1410 Case Heatsink/Fan

    Hi, I bought a couple of this for when my CC 1410 motors arrive, and I have them mounted on a heatsink on a 550 motor. The fit is good, but they are really flimsy and the fan is going to die quickly I'm sure. Anyone have a good heatsink and/or fan solution for 1410/36xy motors? Heatsink...

    Mama Monster stuttering

    I just installed a Mamba Monster X ESC. I tried to throttle test the Talion, and it just stutters like crazy without any acceleration. I checked the Castle Link setting , tried a few different ones, timing, etc. Nothing has changed this. Also, the ESC doesn't "chime" when I first power on the...

    So I have a kraton with a castle mamba monster 2200kv 1515 motor , was working ok but was getting low voltage cutoff when a couple of times because some dirty pos at the hobby shop sold me 14 gauge adapter to run to batteries that I didn't need. I figured it out and ditched the adapter and put a...

    I had a 4070 TpPoer 1700kv in my Kraton, I use 4s had a 14 tooth pinion.. never got over 100 degrees barely. It was fast enough for my yard. I am now experimenting with the Traxxas version of Castles 1717 1650kv. I have only ran this (always had a MMX) motor 3 times and it is still COLD here...

    Mega Sidewinder SV4 and 4600KV in Senton 4X4 Mega

    Hi All, I'm new to the Arrma brand as I've spent the last few years building Tamiyas. I recently purchased a Senton Mega and wanted to put in a Sidewinder SV4 and 4600KV Castle that I have laying around. I noticed that SC 4x4s are recommended to use the SCT ESC, but this truck is light, and I...

    Just upgraded to brushless in my Arrma granite with a Sidewinder setup. Everything programmed but sometimes when I'm running it there is a delay. I hit the gas and it will run and stall run and stall then take off like nothing is wrong

    Mamba Monster X smoking motors?

    I am stumped. Ive been in RC long enough to check the obvious things, gearing, drive train binding, Lipo battery discharge rate, and bad wiring. But this is just beyond me now. I have smoked one Mamba monster X and almost smoked another. I have updated the ESC from Castle Link, and the same...

    Castle Creation SCT Motor in Fury

    I'm thinking of buy a Castle Creation SCT combo with a 3800kv motor for my Arrma Fury mega (2013). Will this motor be too much for the car? Will I break my diff with it?

    Keep an eye on this part

    Still a newbie but if you are too, keep an eye on this pin in the rear Arm. This is the second time it has worked loose on me. First I just bent it back to straight, then purchased some in case it happened again. The other side seems locked in but there is enough room on this side for it to work...
