It is the perfect upgrade for any 1/6th scale vehicles weighing up to 20 lbs and running up to 8s LiPo; it is also a great upgrade for drivers looking for a reliable, high torque 8s motor for their 1/8th scale vehicles.


  • Running modes include SmartSense Sensored and an ultra-efficient Sensorless mode.
  • High-strength, high-temperature grade neodymium sintered magnets combined with High-strength Kevlar wrap ensures the integrity of the rotor is not compromised during harsh running conditions.
  • Oversized NMB bearings and vibration dampening system ensure the longest bearing life possible.
  • Our proprietary winding techniques allow us to produce a stator assembly that is the lowest possible resistance, resulting in a cooler running motor.
  • Updated modern and sleek design; looks as cool as it performs.
  • Improved 4-pole 12-slot design boasts exceptional effieciency and produces less heat.
  • Quietsense technology shields the sensors from magnetic field noise generated from the motor coils and keeps your motor and ESC in sync at all times.
  • Use of a Flux Shield in conjunction with secondary Sense Magnets delivers even higher precision and more efficient startups.
  • Optimized design eliminates the need for mechanical timing adjustments. The sensor alignment method delivers uniform timing and torque in both directions, automatically.
  • Updated modern and sleek design; looks as cool as it performs.

Highest Efficiency

Without a robust and reliable design, efficiency will only go so far. RC enthusiasts love pushing their equipment to the edge. The Castle engineers know this and spared no expense when developing a design that could hold up to the harsh conditions that the RC community will throw at it, resulting in a cooler running motor. A cooler motor has a longer lifetime. Construction of our motor required careful component selection; each verified through internal testing to ensure the highest efficiency possible. In the end, the result is a motor with unmatched quality, performance, and reliability. We wouldn’t put our name on anything less.

Taking Overpowering Seriously

Castle engineers always add a little something extra in their designs that takes your performance to the next level. We have not skimped here. Many customers have utilized our industry leading software functionality that Castle Link offers. When paired with a Castle Creations sensor supported ESC, you can unlock advanced tuning capabilities that Castle Link provides specifically for sensored motors.

Smartsense uses the motors sensors to start the motor to provide smooth starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability. Once the motor is turning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle’s ultra-efficient sensorless mode. When running, a motor must transition between different load points and a different timing advance is required for optimal efficiency at all load points. Using mechanical timing adjustments alone, you can only target one driving condition, such as higher start power or higher top end speed. This sacrifices performance and efficiency during the other driving phases. Electronic timing in Smartsense will advance timing automatically for peak performance during all driving conditions. This allows users to combine the best of both worlds in an unrivaled HYBRID between smooth sensored startups and high-efficiency sensorless drive.

With a Castle sensored ESC and sensored motor you will have the ultimate power plant for your vehicle. Users will experience precise throttle control, buttery smooth starts, peak performance and efficiency throughout the full throttle range. You will feel the power and longer run times that a world-class motor produces.

It’s not magic… it’s SMARTSENSE.
