Optimized for No Prep RC 2S Drag Racing - High Torque Castle Technology
The Castle Creations 1412-6400kV Sensored 4-Pole Brushless Motor is a mid RPM design developed specifically for 2S No Prep RC drag racing. 12awg wire and 6.5mm bullet connectors have been combined with an application specific design that allow this motor to create big torque and high watt output.
During the design phase, Castle went with a slightly different approach than current motors on the market. Most no prep motors are standard 540 size with very high kv (low turn). These motors rely on high RPM and low torque to push the car down the track (think turbo charged 4 cylinder). The 1412 is longer than most drag motors, which provides significantly more torque, acceleration, and cooler temps (think American Muscle). This results in a high horsepower, snappy, cool running motor. Your final drive ratio will need to be decreased (larger pinion/smaller spur) to get the RPMs up for top speed; due to the size of the motor it will take just about any gearing and CHEAT timing you can throw at it.
Castle beefed up the design over a standard 14xx series motor to handle the high demands of drag racing. It uses a 5mm output shaft, 12AWG battery wires and 6.5mm bullets. Due to the high power nature of this motor it is highly recommended to use a 1/8th scale size ESC or larger. The 1/8th Mamba Monster X and 1/6th scale Mamba Monster X 8s are great pairings with this motor.
