I'm getting the point that fewer turns gives higher RPM (although I don't know why), and now I'm seeing classifications (in addition to the turns) like single, double and triple. How is that related to performance? Is there a good web site out there that explains all of this with pictures/diagrams?

I know there is a site that describes it better, but I can't find it now,,, but suffice to say, lower turns of heavier wire on a motor make it faster (in rpm's), but losing a little torque (power) along the way,,, that's why u gotta gear down (less teeth) on your pinion, or smaller prop,,,to let the motor unwind!,,, this is also inversely proportional as to how quick it will drain your battery!,,,Now, winds are how many wires are used to wrap around the armature,,, normally it is one, for stocks & modifieds,,, but, it has been found that using a smaller diameter of multistrand wires to wrap the armature, double, triple, quad, & quint, gives u more RPM,,, this also moves the torque curve (power) to a higher rpm range, like "passing gear" or a racing cam in a car motor,,, again at a slight loss of torque,,, usually 15 to 17turn single wind motors are the maximum u wanna use for off-road, or boats,,, otherwise it will kill your battery run time, and give u excessive heat!,,, and u will also need a strong ESC to handle the current,,, on-road cars are very light, & use a minimum of gears, so they can handle hot low turn, double, triple, or quad motors,,, Good Luck

This may be eaiser to understand. TURNS= the number of times the wire is wrapped around the armature.( The fewer the turns the faster the motor )
WINDS=The number of strands wrapped around the armature.( Low winds offer explosive, low end punch; High winds,more top end speed )

Yep!,,, I believe I said all of that!,,,

rc-dude summed it up well. The fewer number of turns a motor has the higher RPM's it can produce, but the less torque.
The winds a motor has is also important. Higher wind number (triple +) will offer more power and RPM on the same voltage as a double or single.

Yes Oldboy, I believe you said all that too.
