Minis can be a blast especially when space for action is limited. Castle knows how much fun it can be and have brought power to those who won’t settle for mediocre. The Castle Mamba Micro X lays down a small footprint making ti perfectly suited for 1/18-scale size, and its “mighty-mite” 0808 brushless motors complete this waterproof system that can really elevate 2WD or 4WD vehicles. A serious upgrade that we would love to try out- hopefully we can get our hands on one soon. Castle has made a reputation for speed and reliability and this new system should provide plenty of grunt when things get serious.

Latest from Castle Creations:
The Mamba Micro X puts Extreme Power, Extreme Control and Extreme Fun in a relatively small footprint – small enough for most 1:18th scale vehicles. The waterproof Micro X is suitable for 2WD or 4WD vehicles over 1.5 lbs and up to 2.25 lbs. The Micro X and one of our “mighty-mite” 0808 brushless motors is simply an awesome brushless power system upgrade for Mini-LST, Half-Eight, Mini-Quake and Spyder vehicles. In following with the other Mamba X Series ESCs, the new Mamba Micro X features even more extreme performance and capabilities than the model it replaces. The new Micro X receives a heavy-duty BEC (battery eliminator circuit) to handle today’s high-draw digital servos and also features a programmable Auxiliary Wire (AUX) that allows the user to make “on-the-go” adjustments to several settings, such as torque control and max throttle, directly from a compatible transmitter. This allows you to fine-tune the performance of the Micro X to meet changing driving conditions.
New to the Micro X is the ability to run sensored brushless motors (with the purchase of an optional Sensor Harness). Now, a whole new group of R/C enthusiasts will be able to enjoy the power, control and fun of a Castle power system in your vehicle. The Micro X is cable of running on 2S up to 3S LiPo power with a highly-efficient heat sink design to keep you running cool, even when pushing it hard in mud, sand and other heavy power applications.
Castle Link: Industry-Leading Software Functions and Tuning
Small but mighty, the Micro X can be “custom tuned” via Castle’s industry-leading Castle Link software. The Micro X includes a coupon for a free Castle Link USB device. This allows access to the full programming suite of adjustable settings so that enthusiasts can tune and tweak the performance of their Micro X-equipped vehicle to their preference.
Castle Link adjustable settings for the new Micro X include:
- Braking Curve
- Drag Brake
- Auto LiPo Cutoff
- Punch Control
- Reverse Type
- Motor Type
Mamba Micro X ESC + Motor Combos
