Default Hobbywing XR10 Stock Spec ESC and capacitor

I use the Hobbywing XR10 Stock Spec ESC with the capacitor that came with the ESC. I have read and been told to put a 2 cap or 4 cap capacitor on the ESC.

What is the reason for doing this? Is it really that noticable?

Has anyone tried using the Hobbywing Non polarity capacitor (NPC for XR10 PRO G2 ESC Stock Racing) on the Stock Spec ESC? I like the clean look of the new capacitor but it says it is for the XR10 Pro G2 but I wonder if it would work.

I have run both types of caps zero difference in stock racing that I could tell.

The only difference you will notice it that such a square capacitor is easier to mount and stays put with dubble sided tape where the round capacitor is a pain in the a$$ to mount.
