Why the Lipo battery lead wires gauged below the max discharge rate?

Electronic projects that are either related to the firmwares for the 9x, or simply great for radio control applications.

No it will easily take more, those kinds of specs are pretty conservative. You will anyway never draw 150A continuous through it. C ratings are mostly a load of marketing bull and if wires had to be dimensioned according to them half the battery weight would become unbendable wires of which you'd never actually use the current handling capability in real applications.
