Hi, I have a foamy with hitec hs55 servos. The wires are very long and I wanted to make them shorter to loose som grams, would this affect the servo´s performance? I was told that it would affect the servos speed is this true?

I've done a number of 'custom' servo installations over the years, from shared power wiring configurations to extensions as well as lead shortening.
What I can tell you based on that experience is that shortening the leads does not affect servo performance from a speed standpoint. Rather, lengthening leadwires increases the potential for voltage drops across the wiring and that will slow down servo response due to lower available servo motor drive voltage.

making them shorter won't affect performance in a negative way.. Just make sure you reconnect and shield each wire carefully, and if you use solder, don't use too much. Twist wire ends neatly and heat shrink tightly should be adequate.
