QUOTE (Watty @ 21 Feb 2008, 07:40) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>.. I set the TCS MC2 to 128 speed steps on the Bof B and left the capacitor suppression unit in place (for the time being) since it didn't seem to make any difference to running..
In time you may notice that the BoB exhibits a slight effect like 'cogging' on the slowest speed steps, just a slightly less than smooth rotational progress of the wheels. Snipping out the capacitor(s) will fix that. Like many other DCC users, I chop out all capacitors routinely now; although some of my oldest decoder installs still have capacitors in place, because the running is perfectly smooth. Quite a bit of variability despite nominally identical decoder and motor/chassis combos; probably to be expected with what are in real terms low-cost items.
