I have the hobby wing in my WGT...works very well. If the capacitors are what concerns you, dont worry about it. The Hobbywing comes with a double capacitor unit that is on a circuit board with long wires so you can position it anywhere in the car. I have converted all of my vehicles on and off road to hobbywing now and do not regret it at all.
