Default Capacitor on a V12 ESC?

I was wondering if anybody is using a cap for their V12 model ESC...

I was looking a new esc for my micro...and i think a V12WE was a good choice....

but where could i find a website that has the spec for the V12 models??

Yes I'm using a capacitor on my V12

Here's a link for some more info

www.gm-racing.de/englisch/hauptseite/index_e.htm

And i think the speedo is more than a match for a micro

Why would you want to get a V12 for your Micro? Just get the LRP sport. Smaller, lighter, and cheaper. Would do the job easy! I think the V12 is overkill. I have a V12xc, but it's strickly for my Yokomo Touring car. I use the Novak cap right now. If you need more, just get a couple of them and but them in parallel.

the V12WE is actually cheaper than the Quantum Pro sport..

the V12WE is around $130CDN and the Pro Sport is around $160CDN...

I'm not talking about the LRP Pro Sport. I'm just talking about the LRP Sport. Cheapest I've seen it stateside is $70 USA. You don't need alot for the micro. We are only talking about these tiny motors that pull what 6amps? If that? Like I said, it's smaller and lighter! Plus if you wanted, just rip the casing off and shrink wrap it. Even smaller and lighter! I dunno, just my 2

it draws less than 5amps for the micro...

so let say a pro sport have 100 something amps...

that means its more than enough right??

how about 1/10 scale motors?

The reason why i want a pro sport is because maybe later on i will get back to 1/10

Well if that's the case, just get the V12xc and it'll be all said done!
