    1turn=good acceleration and top end through rpm's 2turn=more punch during low end. 3t= flat out top end speed

    oh sorry i misread your question. 13 turns is a little faster but will drain your battery faster too

    osbornel i think you got your turns mixed up with your winds.a 13 turn is a good jump in speed from a 15 turn,the 15 turn will enable you to run a bit longer & run allot cooler,& has good torque.the 13 turn will give you lots of midrange & top speed.....(also depends on your gearing).
    the 13 turn will heat up faster & create heat sooner to your ESC & cells.if your truck is slightly heavy a single wind will give you lots of punch,& good speed,if you play with the gearing a double wind will give you both speed & lots of torque & have good runtimes,& run realitively cool.

    It depends on the track type your racing on but a 15 turn is good for all around track types.

    This is what you need to know about turns: The less turns the more speed the less turns the more torque.
