I only run a diode on the motor if 1) it's required, 2) I'm using a lot of brake. With my GTX I rarely run one an like I said, only when I have to use consistent brakes. Novak makes a diode that I believe is like 12 diodes all in one.
You probably wouldn't notice much of a difference with the larger cap, but it would give you a little more rip out of corners. With my GT7's I would always run 2 4700 caps.
