3 strands of wire wrapped around the armature 14 times.

So a 12x1 would mean....1 wire wrapped around the arm 12 times.

The more wires wrapped, the more top end...the less wires wrapped the mroe torque.

An 11x2 should be the fastest in top end.... There are factors like batteries and what esc you have also.... The 17x2 will be faster than the 11x2 after about 3 minutes....

If you've got the power to support an 11x2....than go for it. But You'd be just as fast with a 14x3 and it wouldn't be as hard on your stuff.
