ESC location

I had planned on sticking the ESC to the external face of the rear firewall, the same piece of wood the motor mount is screwed onto. However the Wires from the esc to the motor are quite stiff and It is not possible to bend them into shape so the ESC fits on the rear board. Therefore I propose putting the esc just inside the fuselage at the rear, this will also help in keeping it dry in the rain.

The ESC is rated at 100Amps, and The motor peak amps is 55amps, with a max efficiancy of 35a, therefore I don't intend on any long bursts of more than 55amps.

With this in mind, would it be okay to mount the ESC inside the rear firewall?

I would like to shorten these wires, however I am not confident in my soldering ability to be able to shorten them and not fry the ESC in the process.

pictures attached for reference...
