    My esc had a dim red light after running two times. Sent it back to castle. I installed a Mamba pro max now every thing is good.

    Crappy, Red.  I am definitely starting mine with the mamba max pro in it.  I am also thinking of putting the SCT motor in it right away too to go with what I know has been solid.  If the stock ESC is weak, though, I should probably put it in something and see if it goes too since I don't want a weak ESC around.

    I bet Castle is working on a software update for this esc. Get yours yet Rob?

    Not as of friday morning, I bet its there monday. Doesn't matter, I'm away for two weeks.   There must be something different with the ESC than a regular sidewinder.  They've been on the market for a while before this without issues.

    I wonder if the BEC is kinda bad with this esc?
    looks like no issues running 2s but on 3s we see smoke... [:-]

    I have heard that the HPI branded ESC's are way behind on Castles software updates, Like no troque control etc. Maybe the older software is the problem.

    roadstar01 or nitro-rob- When you put the MAMBAPro ESC in did you do anything special? Do you need to just plug it in and go? Also wanted to know if you have a good part number for that ESC. Have you had any problems with running 3S battery in it after switching out the ESC? Do you need to change out the motor? I am new at this so sorry for all the questions.

    I didn't realize that the HPI software was limited until I got their version of the mamba monster recently. If they are behind on software updates thats just bad since we all know how important they are and how they affect things.

    Somebody should come up with a hack for this. I'd pay for it. If they can unlock an iphone they can unlock a castle ESC.

    If people are blowing them quickly before they should be getting up to temperature then its pretty serious. I could understand people putting 3s on it and driving the snot out of it for a few packs in a row and it smoking, but a few minutes....

    I didn't install my mamba max pro yet but it should just plug in and go.

    Remove the servo horn from the servo and recenter the servo and then re-attach the servo horn.
    After working on it for a few hours i found that the servo is fine and it is centered but the steering horn is too short or something to reach the center alignment so it trims to the left.

    The mamba max pro will plug in. the only thing you will have to do is solder on a battery connector.Ran 3 cells with no problems.CSEMMBMAXPRO is the part #.

    Add me to the list of people with burned up esc's. After about 2 minutes on the 3rd run my esc went up in smoke. Iwas running a 2s Turnigy 5000 mah 40-50C battery. I'm thinking a bad batch of esc's went out in the first batch of savage's.

    Manage to do a quick fix by unscrewing it to get length necessary to get as close to the center of the servo. See below:

    Seems like whoever built my xs put in a piece smaller that it should be :S
    Anyone know part # for the longer piece of it?

    You could get a piece of threaded rod at the LHS.

    RE: Official HPI Savage Flux XS thread...

    anyone find their xs to veer towards the direction on speed runs?
    if i do a left turn before speed run it would veer to the left and if i take a right turn it would veer to the right during the speed run. cant seem to go straight even when my servo is aligned

    thinking of getting more ESC, so I don't need to wait long time for mailing sending back and forth and still can play
    What do you guys think? maybe get 3 or 4 pieces of that ESC to be on the safe side?!
