Either way is good

I solder on actual black wire so you kind of have to go inside the servo.

I didn't hide the wires completely but I went a step further and shrink wrapped the coils.

Best thing to do with receiver wires if you are going to keep the elecs in the same car, is to shorten the wires and put on new plugs.
Some guys use a sharpie to colour the wires, others that are anal about detail get black wire and solder it into the servo and esc direct.

Having explored replacing wires I found most good servo's have the solder points coated and a tight job at that, so I went the other way.

Good ternimal crimper for servo leads and such http://www.hansenhobbies.com/ - get the ratchet version, you'll need it!

I've bought one, realised you wouldn't wan't to crimp with a cheapy and the end product is awesome. Lots of accessories there too. Service was great and watch the video it was most informative.
