Cool What Wire Do You Use???

What gauge and brand of wire do you guys prefer to use? Is there really any performance difference between 12 gauge and others? Thanks for any replies!

I like the Team Orion Wire 12gauge best it is really flexable.

Novak and Deans both sell really good wire.The wire from GS racing sucks-the insulation is always melted down into the strands and is a pain to dig out.

I use Deans 12awg wires if I want to put new wires on my ESC and stuff. I think they're called wet noodle. But I usually use what comes with the ESC unless they're not 12awg.

I know the wires from Orion and Novak are also good.
