The less turns the faster the motor, the more winds the smoother the acceleration.
As with most things in life you get what you pay for, an expensive hand wound motor will be faster than a cheap machine wound one, but it depends what level you are at and how much money you have to spend, there is not much point geting a Reedy KR motor if you are just starting out, if you are racing then get a better motor when you find the only thing stopping you winning is your speed not your skill.
Fo a speedy though I would say get the best one you can afford. If you look after it it will last years.
