It prevents voltage from your receiver from dropping.

I'm assuming your car start cogging on hard acceleration. Brushless motor will draw a lot of AMP from your batteries during hard accelaration and sometimes this will cause a voltage drop from your receiver having a capacitor will prevent this and it will give the receiver a constant voltage to operate properly.

With The timing advance we have on the motor and ESC it's a must to have CAPACITOR in your receiver.

Everything was fine till he would tap a flapper at speed. Could it be a static electricity issue like the old spektrums systems had?

Possible check for loose connection or wiring.

Finally raced the MMP in 11.5T stock yesterday and it was AWESOME!!!... I was waaay faster on the straights with tonnes of rip on the infield. However I was not properly prepared for the race and didn't have the right setup. Finished 4th overall. I am so in love with this esc. Beats my Tekin RS Pro and SP GT2 hands down!

No, this dose not happen during hard acceleration. When entering a corner if I tap the corner the ESC will not pick-up throttle, steering servo works fine. One other thing I noticed is if I hold the back of the car and pull throttle ( easy or hard ) to clean off the tires before my heat race, sometimes, not all the time, the tires barley move.

I checked the sensor wire, it appears to be fine.

My only experiance with the Losi 17.5 is about 3 runs then it burned up my speedo as the motor toasted. I just got into brushless and my buddy gave me a brand new Losi 17.5 and Speed Passion speedo. Gave me a gearing to start with. Ran the car and the temp was only 140 degrees. Ran another practice and 140. Ran my 1st heat and 140 degrees. Run my 2nd heat and 30 seconds from the end of the race the car slows and stops. Motor 220 and wiped out the speedo.

If you didn't already try it I would try another 17.5 and see if it still is having problems.
