I posted this in the 1/8 E conversion thread this past week.

I called Tech at CC today on this subject because of the thread and my own questions and this is what I was told in a nutshell....On brake the motor does create a certain amout of energy back into the system WHICH is basically being used to do the braking. If there isnt enough energy being created by the braking to energize the esc braking then the extra amount is then pulled from the pack.
So I guess it does generate power and in certain situations (hard braking) it also consumes from the pack.
