What cars are you using? And what kind of driving do you do?
From you question I think you are using traxxas car's?
If you are using the Bandit cars. Get a good 19t motor. It will run faster and be more efficient than a stock motor. you will have to do some maint. on it to keep it in top condition.
If you don't want to do any maint. and are willing to go with a slower motor look into another traxxas stinger sealed can motor.
single double and more winds has a affect on how fast it spools up. generally used as a tuning aid on dirt to reduce wheelspin.
A single will accelerate harder than a double. but both will top out near the same.
A single is less effiecent than a double and so on. but with modern batteries it isn't as important.
Hope that helps some.
PS you can order a good tuned motor from Teambrood.com
