►Continuous: 100A (@Full throttle, 25°C)
►Resistance: Brushless mode - 0.00045Ω (per each phase, .00135Ω total)
Brushed mode - 0.00015Ω
►Motor Limit: No limit (540 Sized Motors)
►BEC: 5.5V/3A with 6 cell Ni-Cd input
5.5V/3A with 18 cell Ni-Cd input

►Weight: 58 grams (w/o wires)

Quark Plasma FEATURES

- Fully Compatible with Brushed and Brushless motors, both sensor and sensorless.
- Extremely wide Battery voltage range (Ni-Cd/Ni-MH: 4-18 cell, Lithium: 1-6 cell)
- Includes Man Machine Interface (MMI) Program Box, for Programming with ease, no PC required.
- New traction control feature puts the ideal amount of power to the drive wheels to not breaking traction for superior acceleration on any surface.
- Quark Plasma offer 4 types of braking setups including the new Velocity Responsive Braking System, which adjusts braking strength proportionally to the speed on the vehicle.
- More than 32 steps for Adjustable Current limiter, Acceleration Traction Control, Braking.
- 3 Advanced Braking Modes:
① Fixed Type (Proportional ABS)
② Automatic (Full automatic under velocity)
③ Auto + Fix (Automatic with proportional ABS)
- New advanced FAIL SAFE function. Plasma recognizes master transmitter signal, so interference will not affect the Plasma (Standard Fail Safe also included).
- Multiple built in Protections include Temperature, Voltage Cut-off, and Fail Safe. Users will also be able to keep tabs on operating temperatures as the Plasma stores the highest temp., which can be retrieved easily using the MMI.
- Updated brushless drive profiles for smooth acceleration and NO COGGING! This software also runs sensor type motors without the need for sensor wires.
- Extremely low noise (-105dBm), and 95% efficiency Switching type BEC can supply 5.5V/3A continuous every with very high Input voltages (Up to 30V).
- World’s lowest noise generation helps signal strength even with long distances and noisy areas.

That thing is hands-down better than the Mamba Max. Now hopefully it won't be hand-down more expensive, too.

The picture guy wanted to take two pictures in one.

I've kind of lost hope that we'll see small brushless ESCs that can handle the power that mod racers want.

Works with _all_ motors
Better programming system for racers
Infinitely better wire connection system

Now, I'm expecting the price to be higher, so Castle is reprieved. However, I hope they will stop lying about adding all-motor functionality and re-release with a better wire connection system (i.e. this one or solid metal posts).

That thing looks huge!
It seems as if the only way to run it is to mount the rx on top of the servo.
Which I guess is not too bad.
Whats the price and who is the distributer?

scooby, it's smaller than the MM, and I'm already mounting the rx on the servo.

MM footprint (approx) 31x48

Well for now the Castle is a little large but not for long.

This technology will be changing weekly so what is cool one week will be outdone in a few short weeks by another company anyways.

As you can see from the specs footprint is 45x30mm what isn´t that big in my opinion. The problem is a brushless ESC needs a lot of more components than a brushed speedo. Also a brushless ESC will always generate more heat so cooling also needs more space.
It seems one brand will release a very small brushless ESC but time will tell if that really can stand low turn motors, high load and high temperature.

If that does what it says it will, oh my God. Go from racer to basher back to racer to speed run, who cares how much it costs! Think of the possibilities....if MM and GTB had a menage with LRP....they would have a Quark Plasma! When is going to be released and who will be the magazine to test it?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
