    Kraton Castle 1717 Heatsink + Fans?

    I recently installed a Castle Creations 1717 (1650KV) motor with a Mamba Monster X 8s ESC. My questions are: Do you know of any heatsinks that fit this motor? Do you know of any fans that would fit on your recommended heatsinks? For context- I’m running a Tekno 20t pinion and the factory...

    Hobbywing vs Castle Creations for Arrma Kraton v4????

    I am looking to upgrade my electronics and motor. I'm a newbie and found HW and CC to be the standard for bashers! I'm looking at the CC- Monster X w/1515 (2250kV) motor OR HW Xerun XR8 plus w/4274 SD G2 (2250kv) motor? What are some thoughts out there..why CC over HW? Oh yeah, no comments...

    Weird Mamba Monster X issue on Kraton EXB

    Hey all! I was hoping that someone will be able to help me figure out what's wrong with my MMX ESC. I've got it running on my Kraton EXB with the Castle 2200kv 1515 sensored motor on the stock EXB 12 tooth pinion, a Castle 1515 motor cooling fan and I'm running it on 4S power only. So it will...

    Kraton Full. Send. - an EXB Build Thread

    I've done it. I've gone full potato. EXB Roller with a MMX8S pushing a Castle 2028. Tons of upgrades: M2C, JBI, Hot Racing - the works. Almost everything is in hand, and I have started assembling this insanity. Progress will be slow, but there will be progress. I plan on documenting each part...

    Castle Mamba Monster X 8S or XLX?

    I plan on purchasing a 2028 / 800KV sensored Castle motor, but I'm not entirely sure which ESC I should buy to match it. The Mamba Monster X 8S is sensored, however I'm not 100% sure how beneficial that really is for efficiency/torque/speed. The XLX is (I believe?) a beefier ESC so I am leaning...

    Kraton 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 or hobbywing

    Hi just wanted to know a bit more about the hobbywing 2200kv vs the castle 2200kv. Hobbywing says its 3000w and castle says it 60k rpm. I have the hobbywing in my typhon but after another motor for a different car. Is there any advantages over both motors like torque, power, rotor size etc or...

    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...

    Talion 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...

    Kraton Anyone try the Castle 1717?

    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...
