This is the Castle Creations "Sidewinder 8th" 1/8 Scale Brushless Car Package, with an included 2200kV motor. Lean and mean like the smaller SV3, the Sidewinder 8th features everything youíll need to toss buggies, truggies, and monster trucks around like a rag doll. Any vehicle weighing in at up to 11lbs and running up to 6S LiPo is fair game. Its powerful BEC will laugh at nearly every servo on the market today, and its potted design will tolerate wet conditions without flinching.
Paired with Castle Creations 1515B-2200kv motor, with the same internal design as Castle's award winning NC-1515-2200 motor, itís got the power to take on the competition. Compatible with applications up to 6S (25.2 Volt), this motor is incredible in monster trucks, and works great in 1/8th buggies and truggies as well. The ESC is equipped with the state of the art software that Castle is known for, and has USB programming capability using the Castle Link USB Adapter (sold separately). So pound on snow filled parking lots, beat the muddy trails into submission, and tear streams a new one. Tell em 8th sent ya.

Legal mumbo jumbo Castle wants you to read:
Although Sidewinder 8th and Castle brushless motors are waterproof, 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, Castle suggests 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.
