    Hi, i already burnt 1 of my dodge ram motors just during the first tests of my rig.

    Its a pretty heavy full frame rig, around 100lbs with the car seat, foot mount setup.

    Can anyone recommend me some good motors?

    I run a VNH5019 dual motor driver and a 650w 54A PSU.

    Thanks in advance!

    Already did that, but i guessed my motor specs as i dont have them. And i was probably wrong.

    Looks like i need some 50nm torque motors at a minimum to have my rig move as it should.

    Any recommendations for some 12v motors with that kind of torque?

    Thanks!
