5-25: Stock motors will be wound using a "Mabuchi" cross wrap technique, and a process that
locks commutator and the armature stacks, so that the timing cannot be changed without
disassembling the motor. The legal stock wind is a minimum of 64 inches of round 22 AWG
(American Wire Gauge) wire, having a maximum wire diameter (including insulation) of .67mm,
resulting in no less than 27 continuous turns of wire on each pole. A production tolerance of one
turn on one pole is allowed. There is no tolerance on the minimum length of wire or a plus
tolerance on wire diameter.

So one of these motors is not a legal stock...

the thicker one should give more performance if the winding is the same
