I can't think right now) Because if the Mamba Max can, then I don't see why this one wouldn't be able to as well. I need to run brushed and Brushless, so any help would be most appreciated.
Yes they run other mfg motors... but there can be a bit of initial startup cogging, at least with the MM. The Sidewinder should be better since it has new software and a fresh design. I would hope Castle would have it figured out this time around... and hopefully they will finally give us the new software for the MM we've been waiting for the past 15 months.

It is better than before but not perfect. More to come

I raced my production Sidewinder tonight in 2wd mod buggy with the 5700 Mamba motor and it was flawless. Zero cogging, hesitations, or anything else and yes I did the roll backwards down a ramp (not that I every have this happen) but it smoked the tires off and started to pull a wheelie with the setup I had. Car was super smooth and if I wouldn't know any better I would of thought I had a brushed mod motor in. Couldn't be happier with this system and for 149.99 it is all the more impressive.
