Take your scale build or upgrade to the next level with Castle's legendary brushless power. The Mamba Monster X 8S, 33.6V ESC W/1717-1260KV Sensored Combo is a perfect upgrade for heavier 1:8th vehicles and lighter 1:6th vehicles weighing up to 20 lbs. and running up to 8S LiPo.
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. 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.

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.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.
