If you want help, you have to let us know what ESC you have. Without knowing that we cannot help you. Knowing the type of ESC is more important than knowing the class of motor you plan on running.

Schotty Diodes are needed and are ONLY TO BE USED on forward only ESC's. If used on an ESC with reverse, the ESC will be damaged.

Some ESC's require caps and some do not. The ESC's that I am aware of that require caps apready come prewired with the caps installed such as the higher end Noval stuff. If the ESC doesn't come with a cap, it defintaly does not need one. Bottom line is to READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!

Default esc

Well the reason i didnt write the name and type of the esc is because it is a locally made speedy made by a guy in lismore,NSW.
They are called a Power Master P2 max - here is the link about it.

Remember mine is the p2 MAX not the p2

Basic procedue is like this:

Solder the power cap to the battery wires from the ESC and solder the diode to the motor wires from the ESC. If you're using generic caps, It should have a silver line on the side that indicates the polarity. That line is negative, while the silver line on the diode is positve. Make sure to check the polarity first before soldering any connections.

I made a simple diagram for you to follow.



Hope this helps.

Since they are made locally, you best bet is to ask the guy making them your questions.
