Product Overview

Drive fearlessly and punch that throttle! The MAMBA MONSTER X 8S utilizes Castle's breakthrough technology CRYO-DRIVE. By reducing the rate at which the ESC heats up and removing heat more efficiently, your setup will be able to handle higher gear ratios, in heavier vehicles, with longer runs. These software advancements work in parallel with a unique open housing design to allow increased directional airflow to cool critical components. With the integration of a 40mm cooling fan and a forged elliptical fin heatsink, the design maximizes airflow throughout the system, taking thermal performance to a whole new level.

High-performance demands high quality and this ESC was designed with durability in mind. Constructed around a robust aluminum casing, the epoxy potting guarantees protection around the circuitry and ensures all-weather use. Mamba Monster X 8S is a workhorse, it will dominate in the harshest of environments.

You can easily optimize the ESC for any driving condition, from rugged terrain to smooth pavement to the perils of rock and gravel. Create, save and download setup profiles through the Castle Link Programming Suite on your Windows PC, or wirelessly with the convenience of the new B-Link Bluetooth Adapter and Castle Link app for Android or iOS.

Additional tuning flexibility awaits you with on-the-fly adjustments from your transmitter via the Auxiliary wire. Simply connect the white signal wire to an open radio channel, and enable the feature in Castle Link by selecting what Auxiliary function you would like to use. Access programming parameters such as Torque Control, Max Brake or Rock Race Mode. Optimize your vehicle for any racing or bashing application you can imagine!

Whether you are burning out, dropping the hammer, trigger happy, powering out, on-the rocks, off-the-rocks, wheeling or mud bogging - MAMBA MONSTER X 8S is ready to test the limits of your R/C car or truck.

CRYO-DRIVE

Castle's newest software technology, CRYO-DRIVE minimises the amount of time the ESC's electrical components spend generating heat by optimally controlling which components are being used while driving the motor. This is happening thousands of times per second, which greatly reduces the rate at which the ESC heats up. This results in significantly improved thermal performance during partial throttle operation where the majority of driving occurs. Your setup will be able to handle higher gear ratios, in heavier vehicles, with longer runs.


SmartSense

When paired with a Castle 4-POLE 12-SLOT SENSORED MOTOR SmartSense software, enabled by default in the Castle Link Programming Suite, will use the motor's sensors to provide smooth starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability. Once the motor is turning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle's ULTRA-EFFICIENT sensorless mode with electric timing. Smooth sensored startups and high-efficiency sensorless running makes the Mamba Monster 8S system produce more power and less heat. QUIETSENSET is an innovative advancement in the design of sensored motors to deliver the highest precision and most efficient startup.


Telemetry Link

Mamba Monster 8S is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX, 7PX and T7PXR Transmitters will be able to purchase the Castle Creations Telemetry Link for S.BUS2. Real-time data such as ESC temperature, voltages, and RPM can be monitored to ensure performance advantages and spare you the "unknown" parameters that all R/C enthusiasts experience at some point. Telemetry data provides another level of protection and can increase performance.




Data Logging

Enabled by default, the Monster X 8S captures and records performance data from your vehicle. This allows you to view a detailed turn-by-turn record of what your ESC actually experienced during the run. You will be able to record real-time data such as motor RPM, battery current and voltage, ESC and motor temperature, throttle input, and more. Download and analyze the collected data via Castle Link and make adjustments to maximize both performance and battery life.


Castle Link

The Castle Link Programming Suite is your ticket to creating the perfect setup. To gain access to the host of tuning parameters, simply redeem the coupon for the Castle Link adapter included with your Mamba Monster X 8S purchase and download the simple to install software from our website and you are ready to personalize your controller's settings.


Castle B.Link

You can now WIRELESSLY PROGRAM settings with the free Castle-Link app available on the Apple App store or Google Play for Android devices and the Castle B-Link Bluetooth Adapter (sold separately). It is compact and lightweight installed in your vehicle, for anytime programming!


15 and 17 Series Motor
When paired with the newly released Castle 1717-1260KV or 1520-1650Kv, users with heavy, high speed rigs will experience controllable low-end ranges without sacrificing power, punch or speed. SmartSense mode uses the motor's sensors to start the motor to provide smooth starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability. Once the motor is spinning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle's ultra-efficient sensorless mode. You'll put more power to the ground, where it should be, instead of wasting it through raw heat and RPMs. The 1520-1650Kv motor is intended for use in 1/6, 1/7 and 1/8th vehicles weighing up to 8Kg (18Ibs) where as the 1717-1260KV is intended for vehicles weighing upto 9Kg (20Ibs)

Motor Features
  • 4-POLE 12-SLOT sensored design that boasts exceptional efficiency and produces less heat
  • Proprietary stator winding produces low internal resistance for a cooler running motor
  • Dual sensor ports to ensure optimal installation in your large-scale vehicle
  • Oversized NMB bearings and vibration dampening system ensure the longest possible bearing life
  • High-strength, high-temperature grade neodymium sintered magnets combined with high-strength Kevlar wrap ensures the integrity of the rotor is not compromised during harsh running conditions and high RPMs

Without a robust and reliable design, efficiency will only go so far. RC enthusiasts love pushing their equipment to the edge. The Castle engineers know this and spared no expense when developing a design that could hold up to the harsh conditions that the RC community will throw at it, resulting in a cooler running motor.
