Default 540 can motor 4 slot vs. 2 slot

I know nothing about the 540 can motors that are run in many of the TCS races. I have a friend who is running in one in his Tamiya Mini (we have a pretty good class of them at our club races). Are there any differences in the motors with 4 holes in the can vs the 2 hole cans? If so which is more desirable? What tricks can be used on these motors, besides the obvious water dipping.
