Difference is how many wires are wound around the armature.

From what I remember more wires makes them smoother and less is more punchy.

One thick wire wound 12 times = a 12 turn motor.

Two thin wires side by side wound 12 times = a 12 turn double. Double meaning there were two strands of wire.

Tripple = three, ect.......

A single wind will have more torque than a double, a tripple will have less torque than a single and will be a little smoother.

With that being said, what will the top end comparison be between same turn vs. single, double, triple winds?? ex. 12T single vs 12T double vs 12T triple Thanks.

Thats a great question, and Honestly I dont know. Though I do have brushed experiance, and know how they operate and how they are built, the actual speed difference is difficult to actually answer in MPH.

I have been running BL motors for around 3 years, so its been a little while.

If I remember correctly, your final RPM will be equilivant, so your top end speed - on a perfectly flat road should be the same.

You will gain speed depending on the terrain your on. If your on street with high traction with and a lot of turns, the 12 single can give you faster lap times, because you can blast full throttle, using the torque to get you out of all of the corners.

If your traction is not perfect, the 12 tripple can be faster as it will not break the tires loose as easily, giving you less tire spin and more go.

Though its a rough explanation - I hope it helps.

If your just playing around, and not racing for lap times, you will more than likely not notice a real difference.

Thanks for the info. Yeah I was wondering which would be faster on top and second and third not actual mph. So in theory the top end would be the same but the punch on bpttom is the diff. I'm really not into brushed motors just wondering. My son does run a slash so that would be the only place I would run one.
