Default noob question

hi i have a noob question, i just bought a rc car with the stock 540 and a speed controller, but i was wondering when you buy a better engine like more powerful you have to buy another speed controller but what about the motors with the turns or something like that like a 30 turn motor? does that mean that when you use the 30 turns on the motor it wont work any more?

thanks for the help
my first car that i bought was like 1 year ago and i only used it for 3 days because some drunk guy run over it with his truck-_-
so i just bought another one. i am sooo happy!!

Essentially yes, you'll see that electronic speed controllers are rated for a minimum number of turns. Mechanical speed controllers are good for very little.

This is the number of times the wire is wound around the inside of the motor. Fewer turns means a faster motor.

Faster motors generally wont last as long, unless you go for a brushless. They are expensive systems but they go as fast as you will need and require virtually no attention. Last a long time too.
