As far as I know, mambas have been known to work with just about anything, sensorless, sensored, brushed. With the 1.17 update everything runs smoothly also. The hacker E40 sensored motor even crawls with no cogging.

I can see it being a problem if you ran in the 13.5 or 10.5 class but if its mod class I don't see the big problem as it is mod. Hell in mod guys get to run all kinds of prototype stuff and they are worried about a motor in the mod class!!!!!!!!!!!

Funny thing is at are track when a ROAR even is held attendance goes down and when it is a normal race or a cash race the attendance goes up. Don't pay for are track to run ROAR anything other than if the shop wants to make less money. Are owner isn't into loosing money.

I ran the MM with a Novak 10.5 It ran ok, but did have some cogging. It just seemed a little off. I talked to Castle tech support and they told me that some Novak motors work fine, others cog a little. I didn't care for it, so I returned the MM.

A Sensorless ESC can run any sensored or sensorless motor, however a sensored ESC can only run a Sensored motor.

I have run my MM with pretty much everything from a 4.5R to a HV long can Novak sensored emaxx motor and they all work. The Castle or Tekin sensorless motors will work the best with the ESC though.

I have a good news for all racer from Mr Del castillo , the boss of Castle Creation :


The Mamba max Pro:

Up to 5S lipo
Switch BEC
Improved heatsink with FAN in option
Sensor Connector (holy **** they did it)!
Slighly lower current handling
Price of the Mamba max

Basically a competition ESC, with boat load of feature for a good price, and no more BS about cogging or "it's a bashing setup"


"The Mamba Max Pro is the next generation Mamba Max -- not released yet (reworking it in parallel with the Monster.)
Slightly lower current handling than the Mamba Max, but adds a switching BEC, up to 5S operation, fan option, better heat sink, and a 5 pin "feature" connector (that can be used for hybrid sensored/sensorless operation.)
The Mamba Max will remain in production -- mostly because some people will want the higher current capability of the Mamba Max. The Pro has slightly lower current handling because we decided to add features but keep the cost similar (fewer FETs, but better heat sink and other features.)"

nice,...
but what does "slightly lower current handling" mean?
Will it be less performant then the MM? (give less amps?)

ANd how will it be compared with a Sidewinder?

but I guess, it' s too soon to get those questions answered?

Mamba max is about 100 amps continous (and it's real world rating !)
Sidewinder is around 70 amps
Mamba max pro will be in between both. Knowing Castle, Mamba max is a "extreme" brushless setup. I guess it will handle ANY 1/10 motor easily

i think its kinda dumb that the mamba motors aren't 'roar legal'. I heard that Novak had much say in the rules.

to bad modified isnt more open-ended then it is. slowing the cars down

Did he post this info on a site or did he give the info to a magazine? I don't think it was to be posted to the best of my knowledge. To be honest I can't imagine that anything was suppose to be posted til it was actually tested and getting actually close to being in production.

Well if you know who setup the rules its pretty easy to put two and two together to figure out why. No real surprise. The other thing is ROAR would of never go with rules made up by Castle or Tekin because they where basically the only ones doing sensorless setups and would go against some of their big sponsors in LRP and Novak. Again no real surprise. Who are you going to go with, the two that promote with ROAR all the time or the two that don't follow the norm.

Maybe the other post was a joke and you just confirmed it! YOU'RE THE LEAK!

He also said that they have a high voltage 12s controller in the works.
