    Start by finding a part number in the exploded views.

    So Traxxas makes the esc mount but not the cap bank mount?

    Sorry for the bump but I have a question.

    Is there a way to get the XO1 capacitor bank and the mount to use on a MMM2? I can't find it anywhere.
    I'm looking for something different than Castle's Cap Pack. that thing pulls the wires in too tight for a MMM2 with series wiring.

    Its All relative to your perspective.

    Bump.

    Im looking for the plastic base and the capacitors. It appears they are not attached to the MMM. Can someone confirm this?

    You are correct. The only thing connecting the two are the wires. The cap pack can be desoldered from the wires and soldered to a MM2 no problem.

    Well it seems this capacitor is not available for sale from Traxxas or Castle. They only want to handle this through warranty claims. Just posting this so no one else wastes there time trying to source this.

    anyone have spare?

    So does the capacitor plastic base available for sale? I bought a used xo1 and i just noticed that there's no capacitor plastic cover on the esc. Not sure if that will harm the capacitor or esc...or??
