The RPM Traxxas Sidewinder 3/SCT ESC Cage is compatible with the Castle Sidewinder 3 & Sidewinder SCT ESC's and was designed to fit the stock ESC location on the Traxxas Slash 2wd, Slash 2wd LCG, Slash 4×4, Slash 4×4 LCG, Stampede 4×4 & Rally.Additionally, it is also compatible with other Traxxas 1/10th scale vehicles, but requires the use of TRA3725 (see NOTE: below).
The RPM Sidewinder cage encases the ESC body only, with air channels along the sides to allow air movement along the sides of the ESC case, helping to keep the ESC cool and allowing the ESC fan to do its job. Furthermore, the ESC can be used without the fan if desired.
Each ESC Cage is designed to simplify ESC installation and maintenance of the vehicle. Two screws hold the entire assembly to the chassis, that’s it! No more struggling with gooey double-sided tape to remove the ESC to clean your vehicle or transfer the electronics to another car. It’s so quick, you can transfer the entire assembly from one vehicle to the next in about a minute!
A separate, encased on/off switch mount has been included that bolts directly to the cage in one of four locations/orientations for extreme versatility. Since the switch attaches to the cage, no extra time is needed to remove it during maintenance or if you decide to swap the ESC between vehicles. Alternately, you can mount the switch anywhere you’d like simply by drilling and tapping two 2mm holes.
Each RPM ESC Cage is manufactured from RPM's ridiculously tough blend of engineering grade nylons for a lifetime of worry-free performance. Each cage is molded in blue or black and backed by RPM's limited lifetime manufacturer warranty against breakage.
