Default Wire lenghts?

I've seen people shorten their wires for their motor to the ESC So there is really no slack, but my question is do all 3 need to be equal? would you see any difference if one is longer? (longer == more resistance??) i know its probably minuscule, but just something i wanted to consider before i start to cut them.

Mine are not equal and each is long enough to get to their respective tab on the motor.

In touring I leave alittle slack in the wires to make soldering/desoldering easier, and to allow the motor to move if I have to change the gearing.

In pro10 i leave alot of extra wire so it doesnt tweak the rear pod. The wires are loosely attached to the center shock.

Dont worry about the resistance for acouple of inches of wire, it wont make any difference at all. Short wires are nice to look at, and keep the car from getting all cluttered up.
