So after reading on here various things about the Max8 needing the extra cap pack, I decided to fit the one that came supplied for safety's sake..

As always forgive my bad photos ๐Ÿคช

I wanted to get the wires as low as possible and also as short as possible, tried for a factory finished look so I drilled two small holes in the ESC cover, cut the wire at the back, after feeding the wires through the holes I soldered the cap pack wire on..๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
Re-assembled the fan and cover then taped the cap pack to the cables...

I'm thinking of getting a Max6 soon, but as I had this to hand thought I might just try it first..๐Ÿ˜

Looks like you did a good job. I think it's ridiculous that they just don't sell it with the extra cap pack installed. You have no warranty if you don't. Just another thing that irritates me about Hobbywing.

Nice Rubycons! My choice for any recaps I do on other electronics.
