The Mamba Monster X paired with the 1512-1800Kv motor is a high-performance electronic speed controller (ESC) and motor combination designed for use in 1:8th scale off-road and on-road vehicles, as well as 1:10 scale 4WD SCT (Short Course Truck) vehicles weighing up to 9 lbs. Here are some key features and specifications of this combo:

Key Features:

  1. Voltage Compatibility: This combo is capable of running on 2S to 4S LiPo batteries, giving you flexibility in power options.

  2. BEC (Battery Eliminator Circuit): The ESC features an adjustable 8A BEC with a voltage range of 5.25V to 8.0V, which can power your vehicle's electronics.

  3. Motor: The combo includes a 1512-1800Kv, 4-pole, 12-slot sensored motor. Sensored motors provide smoother throttle control, making them suitable for various applications.

  4. Waterproof Design: The ESC is designed to be waterproof, adding durability and allowing you to use it in wet conditions. However, it's not intended for operation while submerged in liquid.

  5. Cooling Fan: It comes with a removable 30mm cooling fan to help keep the ESC cool during operation.

  6. Transmitter Programming: You can conveniently program the ESC using your transmitter for six common adjustable settings.

  7. Castle Link USB: The package includes a coupon for a free Castle Link USB adapter, which allows you to program and update the ESC using the freely downloadable Castle-Link Windows™ program.

  8. Data Logging and Telemetry: The ESC is capable of data logging and is telemetry-ready, allowing you to monitor important performance data.

  9. Auxiliary Wire Functionality: This feature enables on-the-fly adjustments such as Max Power and Max Brake while driving.

  10. Audible Alerts: The ESC provides audible alerts to notify you of possible issues with calibrations and error conditions.

  11. Manufacturing: The Mamba Monster X ESC and motor are designed and manufactured in Olathe, Kansas, and are backed by a 1-year warranty.

Included Components:

  • Mamba Monster X ESC
  • 1512-1800Kv Sensored Motor
  • Castle Sensor Harness adapter
  • 210mm length sensor wire (for sensored operation)
  • Coupon for a free Castle Link USB adapter
  • Driver's Ed and Quick Start Guide
  • Castle Decals

Overall, this combo is designed to provide high power and precise control for 1:8th scale and 1:10 scale RC vehicles, making it suitable for both off-road and on-road applications. It offers flexibility, durability, and advanced features to enhance your RC vehicle's performance.

Product Use Statements: *Although Mamba Monster X and Castle brushless motors are waterproof, they are not intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. They can corrode when exposed to corrosive materials, such as salt water. Always rinse the ESC and motor with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the motor and controller may be waterproof, we suggest users confirm that the rest of their vehicle, including the batteries, servos, radio and chassis are also waterproof before exposing them to liquids of any kind.

**The cooling fan must be removed prior to driving in wet conditions. It is not waterproof.
Application Guidelines: Intended for up to 6S (25.2 Volt) operation in vehicles weighing less than 15 lbs, with batteries, ready-to-run.

Telemetry Link Capable: Yes
Tech Notes:
  1. Mamba Monster X setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks and not all LiPos are created equal. Surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack's suitability for a brushless application. Recommended battery capacity for 1:8th scale vehicles is 5000mAh. We recommend using 30C continuous discharge or higher LiPo batteries (or high quality 25C batteries such as Traxxas® Power Cell).
  2. Our experience  suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells. Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups.
  3. Applying voltages higher than 25.2V will cause irreparable damage to ESC.

Tech Notes:

Running modes: SMARTSENSE™, Sensored, Sensorless with Castle sensored capable ESCs.

Water Resistant Design: The sensor board is coated with silicone conformal coating to protect the sensors from moisture. The sensor connections are not water resistant; water can cause signal loss which could result in loss of sensored capabilities. Castle recommended applying dielectric grease to the outside of the sensor wire connections after installation of the wire. Routine maintenance is recommended after running in wet conditions. Please refer to this document for running and maintaining motors in wet environments.
