Default Ok to extend leads on power caps?

We all know that mounting space in touring cars is precious and I've seen a few electronics layouts where the leads to the power cap were extended by a few inches to mount it somewhere out of the way.

Obviously short leads are preferable, but what drawbacks are there to longer lead wires? Would there be any noticeable difference?

I once read from a notable ESC rep that if you do lengthen the leads for the PowerCaps... It would be wise to go to a larger AWG wire... I suspect to help transfer the power quicker since the 'path' is now longer...
