Default Motor-turn question

Hi, I'm a beginner in the world of R/C and really interested.

I have a little question:

Can a speedcontroller that says "Min. 13 turn motor" handle a 10x2 turn-motor?
Or should I take a motor with 14x2 turns insted?

What will happend if I take the 10x2 turn with the speedcontroler, overheat?

Best regards

Its best not to go lower than the minimum recommended turns.
It might handle the 10x2, but if something happens to the speed control that is covered by warranty, the warranty will be void.

Overheat, more than likely, then the heat will be accompanied by smoke.

Then 10x2 turns isn't 20 turns?

Hmm, then I must call my dealer and change the order to 14x2 turns

A 10X2 (ten double as it's referred to) two strands of wire wound ten times around each pole. A 10x1 (ten single) has one strand wrapped ten times. The more the strands, usually the smaller the wires. A double or triple will generally give a more smooth power band than a single. Off roaders use multi winds (doubles, triples etc...) because they're a little smoother and won't break traction as easily. Singles I'd have to say are the most common wind in touring cars because of the rip you get out of the corners with them and TC's will usually have enough grip to lay the power down. The fewer the turns (how many times the wire is wrapped) the higher top end.
