I find them to thin but I now that they are used.
GM uses them to the motor and I used them also for a wile but I found that the speedo got a bit hotter and that the wires became hot.

It will work but watch your speedo and wire temps.
Don't use them to your lipo.

By 1 cell lipo it's not a problem.

Since Vortex Race Spec BL ESC is a relabeled KO BMC, Orion will resend it to KO Japan for repair. This may be what he means.

better to use 12AWG for the power cable, 12AWG internal resistance is lower than 14AWG...
for the motors its okay to use 14AWG
