Thanks Mclin ,McLin said:There is more to it then just the Cap. I have posted this before but here is Charlie's reply to my email again:
I don’t think the 4 cell GTB uses a smaller cap. Who told you that? None of the one’s we’ve tested, or passed around the building for approvals have a different cap. We intend to use the same one as it simply provides added performance.
You probably could use a smaller cap, but you loose some performance and gain some heating.
The Power Cap is there to help the ESC cope with Ripple Current effects that are created by high speed ESC switching. Anytime the ESC is switching on and off, the power wants to keep flowing, the cap catches this and feeds it back to the motor when the mosfet turns on again. So it charges and discharges EVERYTIME the ESC switches. This is all the time with BL, so a good cap is very important.
The circuit board has what are called, “transorb” diodes. These items are like voltage “clamps” if you will. When a big spike comes through the system (usually from the motor), the transorb clamps on to prevent the spike from damaging the ESC and the cap. It kills the spike essentially. If you do got to a smaller cap, you have to KEEP the transorb board. Again, we don’t recommend smaller caps.
Hacksaw check the pins on the white 6 wire harness plug. I've seen them push back before and cause a few problems.hacksaw said:Hey Lin It did it again Sat and I just un pluged the wires from the motor and pluged back up and reset speedo!!!!!!!Ran all night after that!!!!!!!!Hacksaw
