Big Savings on Big Power! Announcing the Castle RePower Program

Castle_Repower_Program_logo_APRIL_29_UPDATE

UPDATE: April 29, 2015
With all the brushed vehicles being repowered with industry-leading Castle systems, we’ve now expanded the Castle RePower Program to cover selected vehicles that already came with  brushless systems from the factory. We’ve now added 81 brushless vehicles to the list of vehicles eligible for the special pricing available through the Castle RePower Program.

UPDATED LIST OF VEHICLES HERE!

We’ve also added a listing of the Castle ESC and motor combinations based upon the vehicles they can RePower and a list of specially priced Castle Accessories to help you complete the RePower of your vehicle.

It’s time to RePower with a Castle Brushless Power System

For a limited time, we are offering a unique opportunity to upgrade selected R/C vehicles through the Castle RePower Program.

The Castle RePower Program is simple. Our product specialists have developed a list of more than 70 “upgradeable” vehicles (Arrma, Traxxas, HPI, Kyosho, ECX, Vattera, etc). Simply locate your current vehicle from this list, decide which Castle “RePower Option” you want to go with, then give us a call to place your order at special RePower Program prices. We will be adding more vehicles to this list – so if your current vehicle isn’t there, check back in a couple of weeks for an updated listing.

During your call to our sales team, you will receive the special RePower Program price and instructions on trading-in your existing brushed power system. Once we receive your functioning, but “old and slow” stuff, we’ll ship your industry-leading Castle ESC and motor combination out to you.

Please note: the brushed system you “trade-in” must be functioning. Trust us, we know the smell of burned up stuff!

Not sure which Castle RePower Option is right for you?

Consumer Alert: Counterfeit Castle Creations Motors

March 17, 2015

Counterfeit Warning!
RE: Counterfeit Castle Creations 08xx, 14xx, 15xx, 17xx and 20xx Series Motors

Castle Creations is issuing a customer alert to purchasers of our motors, particularly via Internet sales. We have confirmed that counterfeit Castle motors are being illegally imported from the People’s Republic of China.

Castle has not authorized nor approved these sales channels and they are a fraudulent use of our branding. These products bear many of the marks and trade dress of current Castle motors making them very hard to distinguish externally from authentic Castle products.

If you are purchasing ‘NEW’ products online, please check the source. Castle does not currently have any active distribution in China.

Counterfeit motors are not eligible for warranty service at Castle, please be sure to purchase authentic Castle motors from an authorized Castle reseller.

Like old saying goes, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!” If you come across a deal that you think may be a counterfeit, we can confirm authorized resellers. Email the link to us at sales@castlecreations.com and we will get back to you with an appropriate answer.

You may also request reseller status by emailing Castle representatives at:  sales@castlecreations.com

Castle ESC cages available from RPM R/C Products

Looking to update your Traaxas Slash, Stampede 4×4 or Rally car with one of our legendary Castle Sidewinder ESCs? Our friends at RPM R/C Products have just released a couple of ESC “cages” that make it easier than ever to “Power Up” with Castle.

rpm-castle-sidewinder-cage_BLACKThe RPM ESC Cage for both the Castle Sidewinder 3 and the Sidewinder SCT ESCs fit in the stock location on the Traxxas Slash 2WD, Slash 2WD LCG, Slash 4×4, Slash 4×4 LCG, Stampede 4×4 & Rally, while also working on other Traxxas 1/10th scale vehicles.

rpm-castle-Sidewinder_ESC_cage-installedThe RPM Cage simplifies ESC installation and maintenance by providing two screw locations that hold the entire assembly in the vehicle, eliminating the use of double-sided tape or hook/loop fasteners to secure your Castle Sidewinder or SCT Sidewinder.

To fan or not to fan, those are your choices
RPM lets you decide if you want to run a fan or not. Because the cage only encases the ESC body, there is plenty of room to install a Castle ESC cooling fan. This clever design leaves the sides of the ESC open, allowing air to reach them.

rpm-castle-sidewinder-cage-3The folks at RPM also include a separate, encased on / off switch mount that bolts directly to the cage in one of four locations for even more installation versatility. And because the switch mount attaches directly to the cage, no extra time is needed to remove it. Or if you choose, you can mount the switch anywhere you’d like simply by drilling and tapping two 2mm holes.

These cool ESC cages retail for $9.95 and are available directly from PRM R/C Products.RPM_logo
