    I've seen people put 8S in them on YouTube. The mamba monsters and variants only identify up to 6S, but they'll take the higher 8S voltage. I'm not sure if the built-in BEC still works properly at 8S.

    That motor is larger than the castle 2200, which maxes out at 6S. I'd say it probably could handle 8S for a while too.

    Running 8S would most likely void your warranty though.

    My cousin has been running 8s in his for the passed couple of months. The built in BEC seems to be working fine. Have fun at max speeds
    Cheers
