All manufacturers/experts say the same, too long battery wires will kill ESC over time, notably the electrolytic power capacitors. I compiled lots of info in first post here:

Ron,
Thanks for the link, I never thought about ripple inductance as being that destructive. I have some dual battery set ups that I need to look at.
