I've been toying with the data logger in my MMX, just messing with other aspects of the hobby. Here is a voltage only reading of the voltage input to my ESC without my extra capacitor pack hooked up to the input wires. You can see all the normal voltage sags when I nail the trigger but its loaded with dirty little voltage spikes shooting up and down along the entire red line.

Here is the voltage after soldering in the capacitor pack. You can see the normal voltage sags when you punch the throttle but all the little sharp up and down spikes along the voltage sags are almost all gone. Pretty cool. Cleaned up the voltage pretty good I think.

Really cool to see with a graph how the cap pack works/helps the esc with voltage sag.

More info on the capacitor mod? I'm new to that.. know what a cap is, just not in RC car use... is there a kit? Or a link to the part?
