You're right that the 12 awg wire will offer less resistance than the 14 awg.

The question you have to ask yourself is you're having trouble making run time or not If you're not having trouble making run time, run the 12 awg. If your throttle finger needs a little help, run the 14 awg.

There were 3 GTX speedos run this past weekend at the ROAR paved oval nats. And the three guys that had them finished in the TOP 4 in MOD. This is a great speedo and it is very easy to set up and change profiles. The Power cap can be shoe gooed to the side of the speedo and it will be nicely out of the way.

Wouldnt that sugest that it was limiting power and there fore speed to the competition? What pro runs 14g on their esc?

Actually, alot of guys run 14 gauge on their escs. But a lot run 12 gauge as well. It all depends on preference. Some guys are better at power management than others (IE a better throttle finger)

You remember the old adage: "To finish first, first you must finish" ? If you're dumped at 4 minute mark because you're running 12 gauge and were just punched out of your mind the entire race what good has that 12 guage done you?

If you aren't that great at throttle management and are willing to sacrifice a little bit of raw horsepower, then there's nothing wrong with running 14 gauge wire on your esc.
