Default LRP v7.1 Questions

Guys;

How are you Guys mounting the Power Capacitor? Are you just splicing into the Power Wires or opening the case and soldering to the board?

I would like everything to look nice and neat too.

Thanks, Steven

Default LRP v7.1 Questions

Guys;

The LRP v7.1 is replacing my old Tekin G-9 (which still works good). On the Tekin I just soldered on a plug lead (like Novak) and plugged the Cap into that. Then Shoe Gooed it to the top of the ESC.
The LRP is slightly smaller (by 1/8") so the Cap will fit along the inside edge laying down on the Chassis. Then I guess I'll just splice in like 'speedxl' suggested.

Thanks, for your replies.

Not wanting to hi-jack the thread, but as ive got the same speedo and its a similar query its going in here How much difference do the power capacators make to the cars speed down the straight, i cant imagine there will be a big difference, but if it gives me that little extra so i can push my average lap under 9 seconds ill be happy

power cap's dont really make the car go faster.
it makes the it smoother that's all.most probably u will notice a cooler ESC if ur running mod.

Default Power Cap

berger;

Definitely more Punch coming out of the corners. Top speed is not effected.
As for the cooler running, never got an ESC even warm when running in Stock.
