I dunno about the euro winds since I have never tried them. Generally what I run is a Reedy Pt teardown with a 10x2 armature. Usually wound with some thinner wire to make it draw a little less. Usually I gear them pretty tall so I dont have to go full throttle through the race, and only pull full throttle when I need to pass or at the end if I need to start picking up the pace. Hope thats helps a little bit......
