Default Pardon the Newby Q - basic calculations...

I am very new and very excited about high performance electrics since I bought a hot-dog version of the EP-Ultimate. However, I have no clue as to making even basic decisions when putting a power-system together from scratch.

I have found out that relating Watts to Weight may (may not) be a good measure of end-performance. Seems like I remember some basic rules (like more voltage - higher rpm, less run-time while more current - more torque less run-time).

Is there an "Idiots Guide to Electric Motors" that takes into account this and the issues of brushless inrunner vs outrunner?

No books that I know of but there is a wealth of knowledge in these forums. Chances are someone has already tried what you want to do.
