ALL NEW Sidewinder 4 - sensorless

SEND IT with Sidewinder!  Watch the launch video

The all new and improved Sidewinder 4 builds upon Castle’s most popular platform - the Sidewinder 3. The Sidewinder 4 is our first platform running Cryo-Drive technology which reduces operating temperatures in all applications. Cryo-Drive is a potent combination of software enhancements and precision fluid dynamics. The new case is designed specifically for maximum airflow from the huge 30mm fan included with the Sidewinder 4. These changes result in cooler ESC temperatures, increased runtime and power handling. All of these improvements mean you can gear more aggressively for more speed and harder/longer runs. And of course it is still waterproof** and compatible with the optional Castle Link USB programmer.

Sidewinder 3 - sensorless

Sidewinder 3 is the perfect waterproof* ESC for 1:10 scale off-road, on-road, and rock crawlers running up to 3S LiPo**. It sports updated circuitry for faster response time and improved reliability. The Sidewinder 3 can run 540 (36mm) sensorless brushless motors or brushed motors down to a 19 turn.

Sidewinder SCT Edition - sensorless combo

Sidewinder SCT is Castle’s solution for anyone who needs an unbeatable combination of power and affordability in a special edition controller and motor combo made for Short Course Truck racing. Intended for short course trucks running on 2s LiPo and weighing up to 6.5 lbs. It is also a great system and a torque animal for lighter 1/10th scale 2WD stadium trucks and buggies running up to a 3s LiPo. The Sidewinder SCT Combo will give you exceptional response and performance right of the box!
