This is an RPM ESC Cage in Black for the Castle Creations Sidewinder 4 ESC. Have you upgraded your stock ESC to Castle's awesome Sidewinder 4 but don't trust double-sided tape or zip ties to "securely" attach it to the chassis? RPM has you covered! Their lightweight Sidewinder 4 ESC Cage fits in the stock location on the Traxxas Slash 2wd, Slash 2wd LCG, Slash 4x4, Slash 4x4 LCG, Stampede 4x4 & Rally, while also working on other Traxxas 1/10th scale vehicles as well.
This cage allows the ESC to be run with or without a fan. It encases the ESC body only, leaving the entire ESC fan free to do its job. Castle did a great job with airflow through the Sidewinder 4 and RPM's ESC cage enhances that free-flowing air movement. Air channels along both sides of the ESC allow air movement along the sides of the case, while the low profile sides leave all of the built-in air vents on the ESC free and clear to flow air properly.
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!
RPM include a separate, encased on/off switch mount 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.
