Default Power Capacitors?

Can this power cap be used on an older LRP Sphere TC Spec?


2s Lipo, i just have an older TC spec LRP and i need a new cap for it.

Can anyone give me some general guidelines on caps? sizes etc, what do they do etc.

Also, what is cogging exactly? is that where your car quits at low speed, not quit but wont accelerate?

Kinda been havving this problem, i thought it was the motor, but i dont know. After some reading, i think its a low C rated battery.

Thanks for any info, Krom.

cogging is usually seen with sensorless motors at low speeds. a cap will not help this as its just the nature of the beast.

the cap you listed should work fine.
