I need more power, or at least want it. I am planning on about 370 pound vehicle with rider onboard.

If it can handle 90V @ 200A that's 18,000 watts. Put a fan on the ESC to help keep it cool and you'd better be holding on to something when you put the coals to it because that's 24 HP.


All I ever wanted was an honest weeks pay for an honest days work.

That's about 8kW of power -- over 10hp.

And it's a beast -- we ran one on the bench at 240A for two minutes before it went over-temp and shut down.
That looks like it might replace the Jeti SPIN200 on my Baja, is it going to have car programming?

NVM found the answer on the Hydra thread. Looks like you are going to release car software. ETA on car software?

Will the SHV 200 controllers be able to be daisy chained? If so what exactly will that enable?

I would guess to increase current output or to allow multiple motors to be driven from one throttle signal input while maintaining sync.

I hope it will be able to do both of those things, would be useful features.

I've been hoping for an ESC that could be daisychained to a "master" ESC for some time now. Would solve the whole dual BL motor syncing issue to keep them at the same speed despite slight differences in motor kv or whatever. Making a 4WD Slash would be a simple matter then.

I would love for castle to make a speed controller to compete with the large MGM 40063 or 25063, or the 40.330 from schulze. Yes the controllers would be physically bigger than what they are now but 400A constant at 63V and 500A burst
