Product Information

Pairing the sensor ready MAMBA MONSTER X 8S with the Castle 2028-800KV sensored motor enables users with heavy, high speed rigs to experience controllable low-end ranges, without sacrificing power, punch, or speed. SmartSense mode uses the motors sensors to start the motor to provide smooth cog free starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability. Once the motor is turning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle’s ultra-efficient sensorless mode. Electronic timing in SmartSense will advance timing automatically for peak performance during all driving conditions. This allows users to combine the best of both worlds in an unrivaled hybrid between smooth sensored startups and high-efficiency sensorless drive.
