Default Novak GTB + brush motor capacitors

Im just wondering, in the novak gtb manual for running in brushed mode it says : The ESC can be damaged if the proper type and number of capacitors are not used. Three 0.1F (50 V) capacitors MUST be soldered on EVERY motor connected to the ESC (unless they are already in the motor); one from the positive motor brush tab to the ground tab; one from the negative motor brush tab to the ground tab; and one between the positive and negative motor brush tabs.

I am running brushed mode with a CO27 based stock motor and just wondering are these three 50V capacitators built in? I have been running the motor and esc for about a month without them so my guess was that they were built in on motor.

Yes, The caps are built in. They are mounted on the little PCB board on the end of the endbell.
