## What does 12T mean on RC Motors?

**Twelve turns around each motor pole using triple wires**. Three wires are would twelve times around the pole. A 12T double would use two wires wound twelve times and a 12T single a single thicker wire wound twelve times around each rotor pole.

## How many turns is a 3300kv motor?

3300 is **13.5 equiv** if it were a Novak motor.

## How many KV is a 8.5 turn motor?

A Novak 8.5 “turn” is rated at **5000 KV** but another manufactures 8.5 may be different as most do not post their KV rating.

## What do the numbers on brushless motors mean?

Brushless motors are typically categorized by a four-digit number – such as ****##**. where as the “**” numbers are the stator width and “##” is the stator height. Essentially, the wider and taller the motor is, the larger the numbers are and the more torque it can produce.

## What is the difference between a sensored and sensorless motor?

All brushless motors used in RC applications have three main wires, but sensored motors have an addition multi-wire loom that connects the “brains” of the speed control to the motor. … **Sensorless motors simply do not have sensors inside the motor**—hence the name sensorless.

## What is the most powerful brushless RC motor?

“**The Traxxas XO-1** is the fastest RC car, full stop. The largest brushless motor on offer propels the car from 1 to 60 in 2.5 seconds. Not only is this car stylish, but it also reaches speeds over 100 miles per hour.”
