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.
