Default Electric Motor Info


Im moving up to mod and stock from 540 motors so I now need to know what brushes do what comms are how to tell when to replace brushes and other bits, how a 13 x1 is different from a 13x2? Is there a site or evena book I can read that can answer my questions?

Any help would be much appreciated.
