Default esc capacitors???

What do they really do?
Do i have to get the exact one thats the esc came with?
or can i get one that has close to the same rattings?

i need a new one on my cyclone, not that it doesnt work, but its a lil beat up and i just want a new one.

i also need a new one on my gt7, it got a lil crushed when the esc fell out of my xxxs and i ran it over

well adding an extra capacitor to the ESC is a good idea but you really wont see a big change. All it does is when u get in a crash and then u see that u dont have that power any more. The Cap. keeps it from loosing that power. You usually want to get a cap. 50 miliohms or lower. If not then it wont help. Dont get the Radio Shak kinds.
Well ya its a good idea to get a new cap. after its beat up. You can buy the caps. that usually come with the ESC's or go and try to find one good enough at an electronic store. If you want to have more than one you need to have the capacitors soldered in parallel.
If u need any more help im glad to help u out.
