Default TB02 Gear Ratio

I own stock Tamiya TB02. use esc LRP V7.1 look fast at accleration compare to my Serpent GP car .I am using an old Trinity Monster Horse power motor.Can I buy any 16v capacitor with 10,000uf or more rating to solder on the motor .Only problem I got is the brake I cant get it hard jam after a couple of adjustment on my Tx and in the esc manual.Looks like my ep car brake like in ABS mode gradually slow down(its the case in EP car brake).And what spur and pinion gear can I use to make my car go faster(presently I am using the stock gearing spur 58T and pinion 19T)What fastest gear can my TB02 handle.Any recondmendation?What changes should I make for the gearing?What upgrade to look at TB02?
Thanks GUYS....

Motor gearing depends on your track. If you overgear
your motor too high it will overheat and destroy itself.

TB02 uses Tamiya 'AV' pinions, you can go up to a 25 pinion.
Or if you're willing to experiment, buy the F201 option 52t spur
and see what bigger pinions you can fit with that spur.
Only use 'AV' (metric 0.6m) pinions.



Turn "ABS" off if you want max brakes.
ABS always reduces your brakes, no matter what.



Power caps (big capacitors) are always only
attached to the BATTERY, not to the motor.

The motor gets tiny capacitors - for RF filtering only.

If you want better brakes on a fwd-only ESC, install
one (or more) Schottky diode on the motor.
Check your ESC's instructions.

For motor RF filtering, go for some around ~100uF ceramic/tantalum.
Put 1 from +ve to can, 1 from -ve to can and 1 from +ve to -ve.
Yes you need 3 per motor.


For the power cap (on the ESC's battery input wires), try
an electrolytic capacitor anywhere from 680-10,000uF.
Different size gives different acceleration results - experiment.

Electrolytics are polarised so make sure you connect it right.


Your local hobby shop should be able to supply everything.
