The higher frequency ESC's require a cap to clean up the signal to the motor and receiver. The ESC in turn does less work and should run cooler since the cap also fills the void between frequency changes (open and close of the transistors). I use a 16v 6800uF radio shack cap and also bought a couple extras from Stormer Hobbies.
