    Resistance of the wire. The length used for ten turns is much less than
    15 turns of the same wire. Less resistance means more electricity can be passed. This also goes for wire size. The larger the wire size the less resistance there is and the faster the motor will run.

    get this motor

    run 9-10 cells.

    if you need a scamatic for wiring the cells in series i can do that for you.

    try this set up first.this set up alone might over wehlm your driving skills.in other words,it will haul as s! it might be too fast for you.no need to make a scamatic for what i do.yet.

    you also need these conectors.

    less turns means more amp draw and more power taken from the battery pack inturn making you car faster.wire size?.them Flat wire arms from Trinity are interesting.the wire is larger to carry more amps as a higher # of winds.yet they are closer to the center of the shaft which would eliminate the loss of torque from having more winds.that is a very goog idea for Brushed motors.
