Here's a question for you: Do you have the slotted stack armatures available for v2's?

These are the inherit characteristics that set apart the Torque and RPM type motors…

Torque:
Torque motors deliver good power through the entire power-band, with a torque cure that well suites almost any application. Torque motors will run cooler and more efficient than the RPM type motors, resulting in lower brush and commutator wear. The added efficiency of these motors will extend battery runtime, generally 15-30 seconds more runtime over the RPM type motors, this in turn helps to make these motors easier to gear and tune….A great choice for all applications.

RPM:
RPM motors deliver smooth bottom end power-band and offer outstanding mid-range and top-end performance, when properly tuned these motors will make more power than the Torque type motors, and are defiantly suited for larger tracks. RPM motors will run hotter and less efficient than Torque motors. High brush and commutator wear along with decreased battery run time are adverse side effects of making more power. These motors because of their decreased efficiency and tendency to run hotter will always be more difficult to fine tune and gear.



For Touring Cars if your running anything above a 9 turn I would recommend that the RPM type motor/armatures be used for this application, as these motors will make more power than the torque type motors/armatures (if you compare the same winds i.e. 10x2 RPM to a 10x2 Torque type)….Hope this helps
