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.

The Mamba XLX2 and 2028-1100kv combo is designed for the most extreme and demanding RC applications. The massive motor and high power ESC are capable of pushing vehicles and drivers to their limits and beyond. This is the perfect combo for vehicles weighing up to 30 lbs and up to 8s LiPo.

CRYO-DRIVE™, Castle's proprietary breakthrough technology integrates unique software and dedicated hardware to reduce heat and dramatically increase performance. Thousands of times per second, the XLX2 software minimizes the amount of time the electrical components spend generating heat. These software advancements work in parallel with an open housing design which enables increased directional airflow to cool critical components. With the combination of a new 50mm fan and forged elliptical fin heatsink, the XLX2 maximizes airflow throughout the system, taking thermal performance to a whole new level. The results are more power handling, cooler ESC temperatures and longer run-times and for ultra-high performance.

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 Max Throttle.

SENSORED 1/5TH SCALE IS HERE! Pairing the Mamba XLX2 with the Castle 4-POLE 12-SLOT SENSORED 2028-1100KV will allow heavy, high speed rigs to 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.
