    what is the difference between a 13 motor and a 15 motor? is it the higher the number the faster the motor??

    the higher the number turns on a motor means how many times the wire is wrapped around the armature on electric motors.
    usually the higher the turn number like say a 17turn for example is more for torque
    as were a 10turn motor has more capability for high rpm, it should rev higher.
    and will attain higher top speeds in the car.
    generally for touring cars you want a 14turn or higher motor for the extra lowend torque they produce this makes it easier to control the drift and keep the car drifting, however lower turn motors are very capable of drifting but they tend to heat up quicker and drain the batteries quicker.
