what does the number of turns mean on a electric motor, and would a higher turn motor be more powerfull than a low turn motor and vice versa? also single double and triple motors, what does this refer too? the number of magnets? on the can or armature?

Less turns means more power and higher RPM
Singles have more bottom end then Triples and Triples have more Top end then Singles

Also, the single, double, triple, etc is refering to the # of wires that are wound around the stacks. In other words a 12x2 (12 double) will have 2 wires wrapped 12 times around each stack, a 12x3 (12 triple) will have 3 wires wrapped 12 times around each stack. Hope this helps.

Is the P2K2 still the best torque stock motor? Indoor racing is starting up soon around here and I need to pick up a couple motors for a small, tight and twisty 1/12th scale carpet track. Any other motor suggestions?

The original P2K has more torque than a P2K2, but the P2K2 will have more rpm's that the P2K. Either one should be fine for your 1/12 scale.

p2k2 / p2k / monster stock would be my choice =) each one is a tad different on torque/rpm, but should suffice. See what the locals run, and get some input, I am sure there is a favorite "track" motor....

I just got a couple new P2K2 motors (non-pro version). Should I true the comm before I break in the brushes or is the comm round from the factory on the non-pro version of Trinity motors? Also, anyone know what springs and brushes come with the non-pro P2K2?

Another question. What type of oil should I use on the v-blocks of my lathe? Should it be thick like bushing oil or thin like bearing oil?

Oil for 'V' blocks........... I would use bushing oil. My personal chouce is Mobil 1. it is a synthetic motor oil made for surfaces that touch either.
