2c won't make that move very well

Assuming the battery is CHARGING at 2C, that would mean you can charge at twice the battery capacity, i.e. 5400mAh = 5.4 Amps x 2C = 10.8 Amps.
If you could find a charger that grunty of course!
Basically as high as you want to go for most chargers i'd say (someone please correct me)

you should run 14.8v. you will have to gear as low as possible. that motor has a very high rpm and really is not recommended.
