Hey Merf, I am not EA by any means but here's how I do things. I want my motors to pull 8 amps at 2 volts no fan. anymore and I notice the motor wont make the full 5 minutes. this is not set in stone. the old days we would get the motors pulling 12-13 amps at 2 volts. just remember that if you got an EA Motor it's going to be fast...you might have to play with your gearing to get the most out of it.
