No matter how often an motor will be produced: There will be always some small differences in exactment, material or electronical items which lead to a range of power. The motors are charged in the center of the power-range, but there are differences allowed i.e. 5% plus or less of power. If a motor is nominated with 20000 rpm and he has just 5% difference to the others, then it will be 1000 rpm difference. Or the resistance in the rotor is different, the ferrit in the stator-magnet...a.s.o....

Hope that was out of any help,
When God created planet earth, he made it with 75% of water. Bet he had the modelboaters on his mind!
