How about single cell versions? I emailed them some 10 days ago and have not received a response. I would just like to know if it will be here in time for Snowbirds and if not it would give me time to cancel the order and buy a Tekin.

The first one's that were preordered for the first batch have been sent. Any other ordered after that won't be here until after Snowbirds, that's my understanding.

I ordered during the pre order time. Should I have received an email?

What is the story with the Castle Link Graph viewer? I have the Mamba Max Pro. I assume the MMP isnt one of the speedos that works with the viewer. Thanks. Bob

Reports from are dirt oval group running the MMP is nothing but great reviews. It has big rip at a little price. We run dirt oval at are track and normally have an average of 100 guys and big races from 300 to are last big race at 509.

Talked with a few touring guys I know running the MMP and all say the the same thing is that the car has so much rip and punch. The more they mess with the speedo settings the faster they are getting once they have a good car setup.

Joe Ford tell the guys they are doing a great job with the MMP, actually with all products and support.

Awsome power and Rip.
The way the ESC mantains low voltage is nice too.
You will know when the cut off will kick in, but the ESC will try to get the most out of ur battery till it does.

I just ordered a 2 cell esc. When I comes in can I send it to the factory and get it converted to the 1 cell? If so how much does it cost and how long does it take?

Castle Creations support rivals, if not surpasses, that of Traxxas.

You guys and gals just hooked me up today. And the last time I had a repair. And with tech support. And with emails. And....well....you get the picture. Probably gonna get my LRP fixed depending on price, but once it goes again if I get it fixed....I'll be nothing but Castle. I'm sold for an eternity. And I as mentioned in another thread, the money I'm saving on my mamba Max is going to a new Mamba Max Pro.

Thank you for everything you do, Castle. Making awesome products and having GREAT customer service. Especially in a time where "Customer Service" in and of itself is rare.

To anyone from or at Castle.

Or anyone that thinks it's a good idea.

??? Would it be possible to add and option to the software for the fan ????

I would be nice if we could have the fan on all the time for hot weather use, without having to re-wire the fan.

Default HPI 10T Firestorm Flux ESC problem

Hey guys, Im currently trying to sort an issue out with a motiv esc which I believe is a sidewinder knockoff?

Problem is when its turned on the esc does the twiddle beep then beep beep (for 2 cell operation I gather) then it just flashes all lights and does not respond, steering works fine, even changed esc rx wire to the steering (to find if its an rx/tx issue, steering worked on throttle ok) but still nothing, tried holding throttle and switching on ect to go through setup but still flashes and no go, tried moving throttle trim on its cheap RTR tx and switching on but no different.

Im not familular with the castle type systems so not sure what to do next, would the usb link firmware upgrade help?

Any help is appreciated, cheers.

The Motiv is manufactured specifically for HPI by Castle Creations.

That sounds like the ESC is not seeing any control from the RX - -I'd suggest you call tech support at Castle and describe the problem.

Thanx!
