1. Traxxas EZ-Peak Dual Charger

Charging solved! Simple. Fast. Just plug in a pair of Traxxas iD batteries and press Start. Traxxas’ exclusive iD technology eliminates complicated charger programming by automatically configuring and optimizing the charge settings for Traxxas iD batteries. The EZ-Peak Dual charges two batteries simultaneously at up to 50 watts (4 amps) each, or switch to High-Output mode to charge a single battery at the maximum 100-watt (8 amps) output. You can even charge a NiMH and a LiPo at the same time. The progress bar and audible alerts keep you informed, while the advanced high resolution peak detection delivers a perfect charge every time. The EZ-Peak Dual’s Storage Mode protects your LiPo battery investment by safely preparing the batteries for extended storage.

3. Castle Creations Mamba XLX2, 8S, 33.6V ESC with 2028-1100kV Sensored Motor

Pairing Castle’s Mamba XLX2 with the Castle 4-Pole 12-Slot Sensored 2028-1100kV will allow heavy, high-speed rigs to experience controllable low-end ranges without sacrificing power, punch or speed. Castle’s SmartSense mode uses the motor’s sensors to start the motor and provide smooth starts, excellent torque and low-speed drivability. Once the motor is spinning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle’s ultra-efficient sensorless mode. You’ll put more power to the ground where it should be, instead of wasting it through raw heat and RPMs.
