Default Esc and mod motor help

I've just started to dabble in running mod touring and I have a QC2. I was wondering if it is necessary to run a capacitor on the speedo. I also have seen many pics in mags of guys putting them on the receiver to help keep power for the steering.

pretty much, always run a capacitor on your esc, run the factory one i should say. In reality, i don't think you really need the two capacitors for your rx, for those high power draw moments, you not a pro-racer(maybe), so the effect isn't really noticable.

It is not nessasry to run a power cap, but it is a good ieda. The speedo will be a signifigant amount smoother, and will feel as tho it has a little more punch. I always run the bigger cap out of the worlds kit.
