Sidewinder SCT represents Castle's solution for those seeking an exceptional blend of power and affordability within a specially crafted controller and motor combination tailored for Short Course Truck racing. This system is primarily designed for short course trucks using 2s LiPo batteries and weighing up to 6.5 lbs. Additionally, it serves as a robust option for lighter 1/10th scale 2WD stadium trucks and buggies utilizing up to a 3s LiPo battery.

The latest version of this combo features our new sensored** motor. While the full sensored capabilities of the motor cannot be harnessed with the Sidewinder SCT, users will still find value in the motor's rebuildable nature (replacement parts available soon). Furthermore, this design allows modelers to easily replace damaged motor wires. With the Sidewinder SCT Combo, you can expect outstanding responsiveness and performance right out of the box.

The electronic speed control (ESC) in this setup provides ample power for 2-3S LiPo operation and is housed in a waterproof* casing capable of performing effectively in various environmental conditions.

The Sidewinder SCT combo package includes:

  • Sidewinder SCT Edition ESC
  • Castle 1410 1Y 3800 Kv sensored** motor (featuring a 3.2mm shaft)
  • Driver's Ed and Quick Start Guide
  • 1/10th scale gearing chart
  • Decal sheet

*Please note that this system is not intended for operation when fully submerged in liquid. In case of operation in wet conditions, it's advisable to rinse the unit with fresh water to remove dirt or corrosive substances and then thoroughly dry the unit.

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.

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.
