    The stock motor is a 540, and you can put other 540 motors in it.

    if you have more turns on a motor, does it give more power or speed

    i beleive the more turns the more torque and the less turns, the higher top speed.

    more turns = less RPM
    less turns = more RPM

    you want the lowest turn motor if you want to got relly fast.but you have to have a good esc that can handle a motor like that.

    In a nutshell: Turns is the amount of times a wire is wound around the armature. The more turns the faster the motor will rotate but will have less torque due to the weight of the wire(s). Winds are the amount of wires wound around the armature. For instance a 12t 4w motor would have 4 wires wound 12 times around the armature. The number of winds indicates where on the acceleration curve the most power will happen. If you have a single wind motor, you will have a lot of power in your lower end speeds (acceleration) but a lesser top end speed. If you have a 4 wind motor you will have a lot of power in the top end (WOT speed) but acceleration will suffer. Hope this helps
