To the O.P., get the TQ servo wires, motor and sensor wires. Guaranteed 4 10th's off your lap times.

The old wet noodle I had was copper but the stuff i bought not to long ago wasnt. So yeah i dunno.. But if you have the copper wet noodle then theres not much reason to swap

To be honest, I wouldn't say it's better as this would depend on your application.

My focus was to engineer a product that would be lighter and more flexible than 12....with enough capacity to power modern BL systems in TC's @ 2C and still be flexible/thin enough for lower wind 1/12th pan and oval cars. Plus, we really didn't need another 12 gauge as the wire you mentioned is clearly a fine product, albeit a bit old school for the current breed of power systems.

Finding wire a pain, color another pain. You find what you want. then work to be done. A lot of work and trouble resolder wires in the servo a pain!!!

Customizing pigtail probably your best bet. Sanwa/Airtronic same plug as the Hitec. Toshiba another style.

All my RC's Cars, Airplane, and boat servo all customized for use. 14-22 gauge wire. Futaba and Airtronics. Purchased the wire and plug and the crimper. Most of the time I just cut the pigtail crimp another plug on, then use Servo Wire Braided Sleeve Wrap. Wrap you can find as less than .20 a foot!! Yes you can find in different color. Cut to length, use a lighter at end so it doesn't unraval, still neat wireing!! But up to you. Just my 2 cent in. just a hobby. Good luck!!

You can also buy a servo that already had black shortened wires:
