hey, i need some help on what rpms to run on a weapon motor

7 inch vertical disk weapon
18 volt
motor to weapon gearing 1 inch to 1.5

thinking about 1500 rpm per volt motor
would 10000 at teeth be to fast?
would 4000 at teeth be to slow?

what rpm per motor would you go with?

pick the fast motor and you can always run it at a lower rpm by changing your throttle

try this
Neu-Castle 1717 1580k
from this sight http://www.castlecreations.com/products/neu-castle_motors.html

or this one Neu-Castle 1520 1Y 1600kv

u want more torque so u can get it to spin up faster and have more power

read the description for the motors on this page the ones with the lower rpms have alot of torque
