    I'm pretty sure it is, because they're saying 'powered by Castle'. Not 100% sure though.b
    This is a signature.

    I agree, when you have a blacked out truck you want a black motor... At least they should offer green, blue and black...

    Anyway.... it's smart to use Castle's experience and quality instead of starting as a newbie on that road. Saying that assuming Traxxas doesn't manufacture the Velineon sets itself.

    First batch of Funny Cars will have green motors, FYI. Far more will have blue, and blue is the official color, but the very first cars will have green.

    Traxxas should put the green motors in the John Force and Mike Neff cars and the blue ones in the Courtney Force and Robert Hight cars They can send them all to me and I will swap them all over and send them all back well most of them.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    This would be awesome, I really hope my John Force Edition has a "Castle green" motor.

    Side note: Does this appear to be the 1415 motor?

    Yes it does look to be the 1415. I think that's why the first batch will be in castle colors. Special edition? I own one already. I'll cut you a special price on it.

    Haha awesome.

    So the motor is 4s capable, and speed control appears to be a Mamba Max Pro, which is also 4s capable...hmmm

    That would make the Slash 4x4 the best truck right out of the box! Most people upgrade to that motor anyway, they might as well offer it from Traxxas!

    Pics are online and unboxing videos. It is a green motor and branded with castle. The thought of a first edition is cool but it's clearly labeled Castle and has no traxxas branding on it.

    Same motor, not necessarity an identical ESC to the MMPro.

    TRAXXAS ET-3s ESC SPECS
    Input voltage (cells): 3-cell LiPo (max: 11.1 volts)
    Alt-248 on the number pad =

    True, but it looks an aweful lot like it. Exactly the same size and weight. I bet it is an MMP with specially designed software for the Funny car.

    I got my F/C a few weeks ago. I am new to RC. My car has the Green Castle motor in it. Is the Blue motor slower or faster? I tried the weight and it helped some. Would like a lil more technical info on how to "lock" the front steering. Not gonna try the silly putty yet.
