A video showing a Traxxas Summit crawling with a Castle Creations Mamba Monster brushless power system installed.
With all the debate raging among RC enthusiasts about sensored vs. sensorless power systems, this demonstrates a sensorless motor still does a fairly commendable job of crawling when it's paired with the Summit's low geared two-speed transmission. Aside from the noise, it still shows decent control and hardly compromises on the low end of the Summit's awesomely wide fun spectrum, all while adding so much more to the high end. A sensored system would most certainly eliminate the audible clicking noise heard in the video however.
At the time of creating this video, Castle firmware version 1.20 offers by far the best throttle control at low speed (no uncontrollable surging as seen with v1.21 thru 1.24).
