I would get any cap thats over 1000mf and at least 12volts.....so this way it will keep the esc nice and cool and provide some punch as well.

Because i really dont use any cells higher then 7.2volts....at the track i go too there mod class consists of Speed 300 and five cells......thats why the voltage of the cap is so low and the mf is so high. Its really a preference though....if you plan on going up in cells you want to make sure your cap can handle it.....thats why i recommend a cap at 12volts.

Yes, it really doesnt matter what esc you have...whether or not its forward only it doesnt matter......Do this little mod and tell us what you think.
