Default well

the power capacitor should have one side with a white stripe of some sort this is the (- negtive side) solder that wire on the negative terminal of the ESC and solder the other tab which is the (+ positive side) in the positive terminal. I think thr original is preet useless try using a higher micro farrod rating like 8000mF Anywayz hope this helpz

Just loook carefully there really no right and wrong or steps on doing it, here let me try to give you some step:-

1) indicate where positive and negative is, the negative side should have a white stripe or some sort this is the (-) side. and obviously the other side is (+) side.

2) Solder the (-) side on the negative terminal of your speedo

3) Solder the (+) side on the positive terminal of your speedo

4) Ensure you insulate any expose terminals with heatshirn or something just in case a piece of metal etc.. lands on the joints

By the way didnt the speedo come with instructions ??

I hope this helps. Anywayz enjoy and show them what TRF power can do heheheee

The MC800 is identical to the LRP Quantum Comp...You can use the Worlds Kit for it. Find someone at the track that has one and ask to see the instruction sheet.

The Capacitor is soldered on the motor side wires.
-Neg to the Blue wire on the ESC.
+Pos on the Red wire ont eh ESC.

Do not solder anything on the black wire.

hope this helps Hope you have better luck with your MC800 than I did... I fried mine after 2 days of practice.

What's to figure out.

Here is is in b&w:

The Capacitor is soldered on the motor side wires.
-Neg to the Blue wire on the ESC.
+Pos on the Red wire on the ESC.


I have also seen upgrade kits like the worlds kit fo r the LRP made for the Futaba.
