Tech Notes: Monitor motor temperatures closely; overheating a motor will cause permanent damage to the magnets. Never exceed 180 deg F on the the motor or ESC.When using on a heavy truck (10 - 11 lbs) you must run conservative gearing as the sport Sidewinder ESC will run hotter compared for a Mamba Monster ESC.
Product Use Statements: *Although Sidewinder 8th 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.
Items Needed for Operation: Battery connector (not included).
