ProTek RC Starter Box Carrying Bag0 comments - Jul 02 2015 04:36 PM
The ProTek R/C Starter Box Carrying Bag is safer and more convenient for carrying a roaring nitro vehicle to and from the pits.
1/8 scale tires spinning at several thousand RPMs are dangerous, especially when they’re just a couple of inches from your arm while you’re balancing a vehicle atop the starter box. Not to mention, the fumes that smack you in the face with every rev of the engine. ProTek R/C’s Starter Box Carrying Bag allows you to comfortably carry a 1/8 scale nitro vehicle at your side when moving in and out of pit row. The Carrying Bag frees up your other hand while putting the weight of the 1/8-scale vehicle and starter box much lower in a more natural position - your arm will thank you!
The all canvas Starter Box Carrying Bag features an interior liner and two 13” handle straps that won’t interfere with the tires. The liner is fuel resistant and easily cleans up when things get messy. The carrying bag will accommodate most popular starter boxes including: ProTek R/C SureStart, OFNA 1/10 & 1/8 starter boxes, Mugen Seiki Pro Starter BIII, LRP 1/10 & 1/8 Spec 2, Hudy “Star-Box”, Team Associated Compact 1/10 & 1/8 starter boxes and Team Losi 8IGHT & 8IGHT-T starter boxes. Make it easy on your pit guy and grab a ProTek R/C Starter Box Carrying Bag.
- Durable, heavy-duty bag material
- Dual handles won't interfere with tires
- Safe, one handed pit operation
- No fumes in your face
- Compatible with boxes up to 5.5" (14cm) wide x 14.5" (36.8cm) long
- Price: $15.99

Castle Creations Mamba Monster X-Extreme ESC7 comments - Jul 02 2015 04:27 PM
The new Monster X provides even more extreme performance than the Monster 2. Most notable is the addition of a new, programmable Auxiliary Wire that allows users to make “on-the-go” adjustments to several settings, such as torque control and max throttle. The new Auxiliary Wire allows users to fine-tune the performance of their Monster X ESC right from the transmitter using an auxiliary channel on the receiver. The AUX wire function is disabled by default but is programmable via Castle Link. Once the user has programmed the functionality of the AUX wire, that setting can then be adjusted on-the-go from a compatible transmitter. The Monster X also features updated Audible Alerts that will notify drivers of possible issues with their calibrations and error conditions to help diagnose problems in the field.
Sensored Motor Capable
The new Monster X can also be configured to run sensored brushless motors with the purchase of an optional Sensor Harness from Castle Creations. This sensored-motor capability opens up a whole new segment of R/C enthusiasts who will now get to experience (or see the rooster tails) from a Castle Monster X-equipped racer, rock racer or rock crawler. One of our Monster X Beta testers summed up his experience, saying “Another race weekend in the books. Once again, in sensored mode, the ESC (Monster X) performed flawlessly. Great power and smooth transition from sensored to non-sensored.”
The new Monster X is capable of running from 2S to a maximum of 6S LiPo power, but now features an improved heavy-duty adjustable Battery Eliminator Circuit (BEC) to provide plenty of power for today’s power hungry servos. The Monster X BEC voltage is adjustable from 5.5V, 6.0V, 7.5V and 8.0V while output is rated at 4.5 AMP continuous and 8 AMP peak. The Monster X also comes standard with a highly efficient, 30mm ESC cooling fan.
Monster X Data Logging
Also new to the Monster X is the ability to capture and record performance data from your last couple of runs, commonly referred to as data logging. This data can be downloaded via the upcoming Castle Quick Connect Duo (sold separately) that allows the user access to both wires into the single Castle Link connection. The user can then analyze this data and make adjustments to the ESC to maximize both performance and battery life.
Telemetry Ready(Futaba T4PX Transmitters only)
The new Monster X is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX Transmitters will be able to purchase the Castle Creations S.BUS Telemetry Link when it is released (available late July 2015). Real-time data such as ESC temperature, voltages and RPM can be monitored to ensure performance advantages and spare you the “unknown” parameters that all R/C enthusiasts experience at some point. Telemetry data provides another level of protection, can increase your “tuning awareness” and in turn, let you have more time doing what you love to do – burn rubber and throw dirt!
