Default What are the best caps for a MVP?

I have a RC Lab Seven Pro 6.0. My radio is a Lynx 3D with DCX. My motor is a handout MVP. I starting noticing glitching this weekend. Not bad, but way more than I want. It took me into the wall on the straight. I picked up the car, hit the throttle and saw the servo jump around. The servo is a Hi-tec Digital servo. I put one little brown cap (100 picofarad I think) from positive to negative poles on the motor. That cleaned up some of the glitching, but I still see some. What is the cleanest and best that I can get and how show I wire them up?

You will have to forgive me as I can't remember what the conversion is from pico to micro farads but you want 3 of the .1 microfarad capacitors. One between the positive and negative and one from the positve terminal to the can and one from negative to the can. If you have a rebuildable motor then there should be an eyelet on one of the screws that you can use to attach the ones going to the can.

I am so glad that the MVP has a tab to solder to. Soldering to the can is so hard. Heating that can that much is a real bear.

Thanks guys.
