The Mamba X is extremely versatile, capable of powering a wide variety of applications ranging from 2S to 6S and vehicles ranging from 1/10th scale to 1/8th scale*. Whether you are racing at the track with your 2wd buggy, bashing through puddles and mud in your SCT or monster truck, or navigating a hardcore crawling excursion, this controller raises the bar to a whole new level.
ESCs have a tough life - landing extreme jumps, experiencing accidental collisions, and splashing through the occasional puddle. As R/C enthusiast themselves, Castle engineers understand this and designed the Mamba X to endure these situations and power through them. It is housed in a rugged CNC-machined aluminum case and then potted in waterproof epoxy. This not only protects the electronics but ensures any heat generated in the controller can easily be dissipated through the case.
The Mamba X integrates a powerful 8A adjustable BEC into a high-performance speed control that can push the most extreme 1/10th scale setups and 1/8th scale* race buggies. SmartSense allows you to take advantage of smooth, cog-free, and predictable sensored starts, and Castle’s new and improved throttle response keeps you ahead of the competition.
The Mamba X is proudly designed and manufactured in Olathe, Kansas and is backed by Castle Creations’ 1-year warranty and unparalleled "make-it-right" customer support. Call us, email us, or walk in our front door – we’re here to help.

Enabled by default, the Mamba X uses the motor’s sensors to provide
smooth starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability. Once the
motor is turning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle’s ULTRA-EFFICIENT sensorless mode with electronic timing.
When running, a motor must transition between different load points and
a different timing advance is required for optimal efficiency at each.
Electronic timing in SMARTSENSE™ will advance timing
automatically for peak performance during all driving conditions. This
combines the best of both worlds in an unrivaled HYBRID between smooth sensored startups and high-efficiency sensorless running. Your motor will produce more power and less heat.
AUXILIARY WIRE FUNCTIONALITY
The Mamba X allows “on-the-fly” adjustments to be made through the AUX
wire once enabled in Castle Link. Once you have selected an AUX wire
function, that setting can then be tuned from your transmitter while driving.
Torque control, max throttle, max brake and drag brake adjustments are a
sampling of the available modes. This real-time tuning allows you to
quickly and easily fine-tune your system.
Enabled by default, the Mamba X captures and records performance data
from your vehicle. This allows you to view a detailed turn-by-turn
record of what your ESC actually experienced during the run. You will be
able to record real-time data such as motor RPM, battery current and
voltage, ESC and motor temperature, throttle input, and more. Download
and analyze the collected data via Castle Link and make adjustments to
maximize both performance and battery life.
For nearly 20 years Castle engineers have been setting the bar for
industry leading software functionality. The Castle Link Programming
Suite is your ticket to creating the perfect setup. To gain access to
the host of tuning parameters, simply redeem the coupon for the Castle
Link adapter included with your Mamba X purchase. Download the simple to
install software from our website and you are ready to personalize your
controller’s parameters. Don’t forget to use the “check for updates”
feature in Castle Link to download new software as it becomes available.
New features are yours at no cost, a perk for choosing Castle.
*In 1/8th scale setups, the Mamba X is intended
to be used for off-road racing in buggies weighing up to 9 lbs
(including batteries and ready-to-run). In these 1/8th scale racing
setups, the Mamba X should be run at 4S Lipo (16.8V) max and is
recommended to be paired with the Castle 1512-1800Kv (P/N: 060-0062-00)
or Castle 1512-2650Kv (P/N: 060-0061-00) motor, with appropriate gearing
