I think it is a EPIC Shock series mod. It's along the same lines as the Trinity Cobalt mods I think. As for what wind yours is, I don't know. I haven't seen a Ryan Cav branded EPIC motor.

It is definitely an EPIC shock series motor. They used P94 and Cobalt brushes. From the numbers I would say something along the 14-19 turn region? If you pull the arm out, it may be marked what wind it is.

Back in the day there was a lot of experimentation with different winds, the double or triple or whatever refers to the number of wires being wound together. So a 12x1 would be thicker wire than a 12x2 and a 12x3 would use 3 even thinner wires.
People used to say that more wires made it smoother, but towards the end of brushed we always seemed to run single winds.
