I would suggest checkpoint motors for brushed motors. Maybe look into the 19 turn checkpoint money motor.
The quote above is for a single-wind motor, in this case a 19 turn single, or 19x1. If you see something like a "19x2" or "19 turn double" then there are 2 strands of thinner wire making 19 turns around each pole of the motor. Therefore, a 19x3 (19 turn triple) would have 3 strands of even thinner wire wrapped around each pole. Same philosophy for x4 (quad) and x5 (quint).

A higher wind motor is like a VTEC engine. There's more power at higher RPMs. A single-wind motor will have more power at lower rpms. If you run on a long track, or you want to go for a speed record, go with a multi-wind motor. On shorter tracks where acceleration is more important, you should stick with a low-wind motor.

If you are looking for custom winds check out www.banzaimotors.com

They sell full CP based motors in any custom wind you want or they will even just sell you a replacement arm for an existing can you have.

They can do anything. I have 12X6, 19X4, 10X1. Just ask! Turn around time is very resonable as well.
