Default power cap question

Hey Guys.

Ok i own both a GM V12 and a Novak GT7 speed controls.

Now i think that the power cap on the GT7 is damaged and want to know if i used the one from the GMv12 just to test and make sure that the power cap is damaged, would this be ok???

I am not going to drive the car, but i want to test it with a motor hooked up on the bench. The reason i ask is cos my GT7 has been causing major interference problems and i am hoping that it is only the power cap. I would buy one, but no one here in Adelaide sells them

Thanks Guys.

It is ok to mix capacitors. You could go the nearest Radio Shack, Tandy or whatever it's called where you live, and buy any 10-16v (10 is better if available) 1.000-10.000 uf (higher is better) capacitor as substitute, just make sure it has low ESR although most new capacitors do.
Do a search on power capacitor here on RC-Tech and read the 4 or 5 posts on capacitors that have been going for the last couple of months.
