Default quantum competition capacitor

hi guys, I got a used quantum competition esc, i've had it for four (4) months now and i havnt encountrd any problms yet. the other day while practicing at our local track one guy approached me and asked why i didnt install capacitors on the esc. I told him that i only ran stock so i thought it wasnt necesary. After observing the other cars i noticed that everyone has capacitors on their esc.

question is do i really need to install capacitors on my esc?

when i checked out hte local hobby shop, the worlds pack for the quantum competition that has a capacitor and heat sink are a bit expensive, however the capacitor in the pack did not indicate the specs for the capacitor, what capacitor could i use? help!!!!!!!

I wouldn't worry about a cap unless you run a ridiculously low turn modified motor.
