Default R/C car speed controller

My friend's rc car's speed controller went out, instead of having to buy a new one, the guy at the hobby shop where he bought it from fixed it! He is aware of the bad caps situation too, told me that the problem is a lot of those use Teapo caps. NOW, don't say that in a small voltage and heat enviroment like that a teapo can do fine. Theres 12v, 2.2amps dc going to that controller, it has a small (about 2 mm tall,) heatsink on the top, and is next to a very hot little gas engine. He simply unsoldered the cap, and put a Samxon cap in there. Works better than before!
