Yes. But this would be a bettter choice:

Racing Power Trans-Cap Module - 2S Li-Po and 4-6 cell NiMH

And, this is why we suggest the TransCap Module:

NOVAK ELECTRONICS POWER CAPACITOR

You could also use a Speedpassion/Hobbywing upgrade cap.
I have been using it for the last year on my RS Pro and its been running great.

Is the TOP 0.15 super cap for 6-cell an overkill for 10.5:

so I shouldn't use the P cap that came with the GTX ,the newer trans cap is choice being geared towards use with lipo/brushless configurations .
Thanks for the input .
cheers
