Exclamation There's also 'Hobby Hobby' ... nearby. About 15 minutes away.

Ummmm... Just thought I'd mention one of the OLDEST stores in the area, if not also the MOST complete, is also probably the CLOSEST, Hobby Hobby (Streetsville) about 10 (long) blocks east down Brittania (but you can do like 80kph without getting a ticket MOST of the way) and right onto Mississauga road.

As for charging, you can charge off your CAR battery, which I've done because it gives you BETTER (faster) output for charging your batteries than off Sid's less powerful electrical outlets... atm.

But Sid's got snacks, drinks, rentals, and toilets for those in need.

PS: You'll LOVE the new layout and people, just a blast of offroad fun.

Motor winds:

10 Turn

This is how many times the wire is wrapped around the sections of the commutator. This is what directly affects the Maximume RPM of the motor.
Less TURNS = More RPM

Windings are the actual wire...When the term Double or Triple is used,
That is the number of wires wrapped together to make a turn.

Sounds confusing....

Say you have as Saberwing uses a 19 turn double.

That motor has two smaller gauge wire wrapped at the same time around the sections of the COMM 19 times.

A triple wind is three wires, a quad 4

What this does is affect the power band not the Maximum RPM

The more winds there are the smoother and the longer it takes the motor to reach its maximum RPM.
If you have three motors the same, all 19 turn
One is a single wind, one a double, the last a triple.
They will all have the same Max RPM, just each one will take longer to get there.
These are all used as tuning options for different track conditions. If a track has really good traction you can use a motor with less winds, so when you when squeez the trigger the car goes. If the track is loose or low in traction you can use a double or triple wind. When you squeeze the trigger the power comes on more gradually helping you to maintain control and not spinning the tires all over the place.

Sorry for the long winded explanation.

Bdegan, thanks for the explanation! I think I understand now, it has to do with the torque I am guessing?

Yes, it is one part of the equation for torque.

When you start discussing torque that is a physics class all by itself.
Then you start getting into magnets, how strong they are , what they are made of, the shape of the armature and beleive it or not, the shape of the can. As it can effect the magnetic field around the armature.

Its best left to Trinity and Orion to bake their brains over it.
