Description
WARRANTY INFO: Your Castle ESC is warranted for one (1) year from date of purchase to be free from manufacturing and component defects. This warranty does not cover damages caused to your motor or controller from abuse. Abuse includes, but is not limited to, incorrect wiring, over-voltage, overloading, improper gearing, improper motor selection, incorrect controller settings, insufficient batteries, or inadequate connectors. Always monitor your ESC and motor temperatures during the first run after modifying your system to ensure they stay within the safe operating limits.
WARNING: Drag and speed run setups are inherently abusive and exceedingly hard on all electronic components. Every component in the configuration can be strained, weakened or worse without extreme caution, an understanding of electric theory and advanced knowledge of all aspects of the RC hobby. High speed runs and drag racing are the most aggressive and volatile applications in the RC car hobby. Improper setup or use of this product can result in catastrophic failures of the motor, ESC and/or batteries. For this reason, Castle does NOT warranty products used in these abusive applications.
Overview

Mamba Monster X Waterproof 8S Brushless ESC

With the introduction of the MAMBA MONSTER X 8S, any R/C vehicle weighing up to 25lbs, and running up to 8S LiPo, is fair game. 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 handle higher gear ratios in heavier vehicles with longer runs. These software advancements work 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 aluminium 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!

When paired with a Castle 4-POLE 12-SLOT SENSORED MOTOR such as the 2028-800KV or 1515-2200KV, 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.

CRYO-DRIVE

Castle’s newest software technology, CRYO-DRIVE™, minimizes the 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.

Smart Sense

When paired with a Castle 4-POLE 12-SLOT SENSORED MOTOR SmartSense™ software, enabled by default in the Castle Link Programming Suite, it 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 make the Mamba Monster X 8S system produce more power and less heat. QUIETSENSE™ is an innovative advancement in the design of sensored motors to deliver the highest precision and most efficient startup.

Auxiliary Wire

The Mamba Monster X 8S allows “on-the-fly” adjustments to be made through the AUX wire once enabled in Castle Link. Once you have selected an AUX wire function, that setting can be tuned from your transmitter while driving. Torque control, max throttle, max brake and drag brake adjustments are a sampling of the available modes. This real-time tuning allows you to quickly and easily fine-tune your system. .

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 performance and battery life.

Telemetry Link

Mamba Monster X 8S is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX or 7PX 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.

Waterproof

Housed in a rugged CNC-machined aluminium case and then potted in waterproof epoxy. This not only protects the electronics but ensures any heat generated in the controller can easily be dissipated through the case.

Alerts

Mamba Monster X 8S features Audible Alerts that will notify you, via audible chimes, of possible issues with calibrations and error conditions to help diagnose problems,

1Y 2028 4-Pole Sensored Motor

The Castle 2028 Extreme 800KV motor now has an IMPROVED 4-POLE 12-SLOT design with exceptional EFFICIENCY and produces LESS HEAT. If you need LARGE-SCALE POWER for LARGE-SCALE VEHICLES, the new BRUSHLESS SENSORED 2028-800KV motor will undoubtedly hold up to the heavy throttle and extended usage that 1/5th scale vehicles like the Losi 5IVE-T, 5IVE-B or DBXL-E encounter. It is the perfect upgrade for any 1:5 scale RC hobby vehicles (including gas to electric conversions) weighing up to 30 lbs for 2WD and 25 lbs. for 4WD. The 2028 Extreme can easily run in the 10 horsepower range*

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. A cooler motor has a longer lifetime. Construction of our motor required careful component selection, each verified through internal testing to ensure the HIGHEST EFFICIENCY possible. In the end, the result is a motor with unmatched quality, performance, and reliability. We wouldn’t put our name on anything less.
