You'll want a hot iron that melts the solder quickly so you can get the wires out without too much heat getting into the ESC.
Make sure you put some solder on the hot iron (this helps the heat to spread) then put the iron against the wires.
ESC's don't like having too much heat going through the circuit boards, remember, the bits that are supposed to be hot get heatsinks!
