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.

Putting the X in Extreme! The Mamba Micro X Crawler edition is our latest offering for the crawling crowd. We have taken our new 1406 low kv crawler motors and paired it with the lightweight, small footprint Mamba Micro X ESC. This combo is ideal for low-speed crawling or trail running in vehicles weighing up to 8lbs on 2s or 3s; it can also be used in slightly more aggressive setups like rock racing and extended hill climbing on vehicles up to 4lbs. If you're looking for a more aggressive setup in a heavier rig, like rock racing and extended hill climbing, we recommend you run the Mamba X ESC with the same motor. Your ESC will come with our new V2.02 firmware that has been enhanced for rock crawling and sensored operation. Use of an external BEC is recommended if running a high power or digital servo.

This SPECIAL EDITION of the Mamba Micro X includes solder posts with 16 AWG wire for the motor connection; it also includes the matching 4mm female bullets to pair with the included 1406-2280kv sensored brushless motor.

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. .

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.


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.
