I agree a receiver pack on a stock touring car is absurd!!! A mod sedan with KO digital servo-sure!!! But not for stock.
Usually every receiver also have a slot for a battery as used for gascars. You also could use this slot as itīs the same rails as the servo slots. Easiest way is using a very short servowire for connecting the cap. You also can remove the signal wire if you like as you only need the wires for positive and negative. Usually this is red and black (KO,Futaba) or orange and brown (JR).
Sometimes there are lower gauge servowires these are better for lower resistance.
Regarding the cap if you donīt get a Panasonic FC cap itīs very important using a low impedance cap. If you look at the cap there are some technical descriptions like capacity and voltage on it. One of them is usually the max. temperature. Cheap caps are rated for a max. of 85° C only but you have to look for a 105° C rated cap. These are usually also of the low impedance type so you easily could see if itīs suitable.
