Castle Creations have introduced their new Mamba Monster 2 and Sidewinder 3 ESCs. The Monster 2 is just as mean as his older brother but is now waterproof meaning you can power your 1/8th buggy or truck through just about any conditions. It is intended for on-road, buggies, truggies and monster trucks running up to 6S LiPo and tipping the scales at up to 15lbs. The innovative new case allows for fan changes, if necessary and solder posts now permit users to change battery wire length and direction as needed. The Sidewinder ESC, the 1/10th scale sport brushless ESC, is also now waterproof. The Sidewinder 3 is a great fit for 1/10th off-road, on-road, and rock crawlers running up to 3S LiPo. It sports updated circuitry for faster response time and improved reliability. As always, the Sidewinder 3 offers industry-leading software functions and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter.

How is being able to change the fan "innovative"? Pretty sure you were able to do that with the RX8 from the beginning...

It would be nice if they would make them to fit the easy to find 25mmx25mmx10mm fans instead of the 30x30x7mm fans ....
My collection:
E LST2 ,TEN SCTE , Mini 8ight , Micro SCT , Mini E REVO , ERBE , B44 , Tekno EB48 , Tekno SCT410 , 5ive T
All brushless ! ELECTRIC RIPS AND NITRO DRIPS ! But GAS is top of the class ! Put away those fiery biscuits !

You can change the fan on the older monster to. You had to take apart the hole case to do it. Looks like the fan part of the case just unclips from the bottom of the case, making it easier.

Looks that way to me from the pic's.

I could care less if its waterproof, I'm not running my gear in the rain/watter

Does this mean they finally fixed the flaw on the internal BEC?
