Just use Kv rating. The turn counts differ a lot from one manufacturer to the next. For example a Novak 6.5 turn motor will have different speed compared to a same turn motor from another manufacturer. Going off by turns will just do your head in.
Stick with kv and you can't go wrong. kv means how many turns the motor will rotate per each volt that is fed into it. For example at 14.4 volts the 2600kv motor will have top speed of: 2600 x 14.4=37,440rpm. Probably a little bit lees with it loaded up by the trucks weight and also some voltage drop/sag under load. Hope that clears up some of it.
