2018 note: 5700kv motor is now a SENSORED motor. The SV3 ESC is sensorless, so you would not use the sensor wire coming from the motor in this specific combo.
Want to make your modified Clod scream? Pick up a pair of these Castle Sidewinder SV3 waterproof ESCs with the 5700kv brushless 4-pole motors! The 5700Kv motor is our choice for the best all-around 10th scale monster truck motor. Upgraded from the original CM36 motors, Castle worked with motor guru Steve Neu to change the motor from a slotless design to one with a 1.4 inch diameter slotted stator. They then changed the single neodymium rotor magnet from a 2 pole donut to a 4 magnet, four pole rotor for more torque. Throw in better manufacturing, high quality bearings and a removable end bell and you have the new 1406 series of high performance motors from Castle! The end result is an all new motor that cranks out 30% more torque with all the efficiency and endurance that Castle is known for.
This 5700Kv motor is roughly equivalent in top speed to a very good 9t or 10t brushed motor on 6 cells. Also throw in a Sidewinder ESC and have the perfect combination of speed and adjustability!
