Yup. Mamba with 3s Lipo. But make sure the lipos are from reputable brand with high enough discharge current for the ESC's current draw.

Have you guys heard much about the Castle Creations Sidewinder? There is some info about it on other forums, but not much. It is on Tower and listed for 150 for the ESC and 2 available motors, I forget which Kv.

The ESC alone is $82...

The Sidewinder is our entry level brushless system. Max you can run on it is 4600 on 3s lipo or 5700 on 2s lipo...we'll also have a 3600kv motor that you can run on 3s lipo. All the same programming features of the Mamba Max. For all out speed with our systems go with the MM 5700 package on 3s lipo...in a TC you can easily get 65mph+.

So is there any official information out yet?

I've seen a picture of it, and it looks pretty cool. But I have to ask, what are the yellow posts and pins coming out of the ESC? Just cooling fins?

Can't wait for more info, I am thinking about brushless myself, and that low price is very attractive...

The yellow posts are solder posts...makes it easy for customers to be able to change out the wire length to whatever they'd like. The heatsink is the black fingerlike extensions in the center of the controller.
