bigger wire means les ir which results in a more efficeint esc due to less energy being lost due to heat. You can use as big as wire as you want as long as you are not trying to pull to many amps through the esc. To fit 12 ga just trim a little wire of the stripped end and tin well, if you solder it right the trimmed edge will still touch the tab, and presto.
