Default Can someone please explain to me how motor performance is measured?

Please excuse my ignorance but I'm trying to understand this. I know in an electric motor there are turns or winds in which they are rated...

However I don't understand exactly what these ratings mean for performance, for example is the lower the turns the more power the motor has? As in a 12 turn motor will be a lot faster than a 19 turn motor?

I've seen people say things such as 8x1, what does this mean? Thanks

You are right in the winds. An 8 turn is faster than a 19 t which is faster than a 27t stock. Anything less than 27t is considered Modified.

An 8x2 has 8 wraps around each post on the armature using 2 seperate strands of wire for a total of 16 wraps.

Depends on how you look at it.

27t is Stock. Anything less would be "not Stock"
19t comes with either locked endbell OR advancable timing.

i think a 27t with fixed timing is a stock....19t with fixed timing is a superstock/spec...anything else is a modified
