Formula1fan,

I run 2 caps parallel, one that came with the vfs-1 package, and 1 that came from the futaba world's kit.

Works great!

Using a 10V cap is very close to damaging it using the VFS. The included cap with the VFS-1 is rated at 25V.

The nickel plated version was released yesterday. The black zinc plated will not be ready until Nov. 11th.

Copper plating doesn't allow for purple. You don't have many choices with copper.

i think it would be the perfect esc for offroad. i would guess since offroad has significantly lower and different traction from onroad, you control how much torque your esc has in its throttle profile is definitely an advantage.

also with the throttle response built into the VFS, it will smooth out the power from your motor and batteries even more.

maybe robert can chime in here and add more. or correct me
