The Castle Sidewinder SV4 12.6V Waterproof 1/10 ESC builds upon Castles most popular platform, the Sidewinder 1/10 series. The ESC is the first of its kind to run Castles CRYO-DRIVE technology that combines technology from cutting-edge hardware and software advancements to increase thermal performance. Cooler temps mean longer runs and more power! The SIDEWINDER 4 is a versatile ESC and is a great choice for short course and monster truck applications, as well as rock crawlers when used in brushed mode. It makes a great combo for 1/10th 2WD Stadium trucks and buggies on 2s for general bashing and limited runs on 3s; temperatures will climb quickly on 3s.
It makes a great upgrade for 1/10th scale on-road cars for 2s and 3s use. NOT recommended for use in 4WD short course trucks.

Product Use Statements: Although Sidewinder 4 is waterproof, it is 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 with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the controller may be waterproof, Castle recommends 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. Not all LiPos are created equal, and surge ratings should never be used to determine a packs suitability for a brushless application.
Brushless setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks. Castle suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells.
Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups. Please refer to the Castle Gearing Chart for recommended motor, battery and gearing for some of the more popular vehicles on the market.
