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. This combo now comes with our new sensored** motor. While the sensored capabilities of the motor cannot be utilized with the Sidewinder SCT, users will benefit as the sensored motor is rebuildable (parts available soon), and this design even allows modelers to replace damaged motor wires. The Sidewinder SCT Combo will give you exceptional response and performance right of the box!
The ESC (electronic speed control) offers power to spare at 2-3S LiPo, and a waterproof* case that can perform in just about any environment.
Sidewinder SCT combo includes:
*Not intended for operation while submerged in liquid. If unit is operated in wet conditions, rinse with fresh water to remove dirt or corrosives, then fully dry unit
** Sensored capabilities of the motor cannot be utilized with the Sidewinder SCT. If you require sensored operation you will need a sensored ESC like the Mamba X. The Mamba X paired with the same motor can be found here.

|Product Use Statements:||*Although Sidewinder SCT and Castle brushless motors are waterproof, they are not intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. They can corrode when exposed to corrosive materials, such as salt water. Always rinse the ESC and motor with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the motor and controller may be waterproof, we suggest users confirm that the rest of their vehicle, including the batteries, servos, radio and chassis are also waterproof before exposing them to liquids of any kind.
**The cooling fan must be removed prior to driving in wet conditions. It is not waterproof.
|Application Guidelines:||Intended for short course trucks running on 2s LiPo and weighing up to 6.5 lbs. It is a torque animal for lighter 1/10th scale 2WD stadium trucks and buggies running up to a 3s LiPo.|
|Recommended Motors:||Combo includes 1410 3800Kv: Max Cells: 2S LiPo or 6-8 NiMH for short course trucks.|
|Max. Recommended Vehicle Weight:||Up to 6.5lbs. on 2s|
|Programmability:||Fully programmable Castle feature set using Castle Link USB adapter (sold separately) and freely downloadable Castle Link Windows software.|
|Telemetry Link Capable:||No|
|Tech Notes:||Not all LiPos are created equal, and surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack’s suitability for a brushless application. Use the CONTINUOUS C rating only. Brushless setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks. We strongly suggest using 5,000 mAh or larger LiPo cells with a discharge rating of at least 30C (or high quality 25C batteries such as Traxxas® Power Cells®). Our experience suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells. Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups.|
