I think you'll find that it will be rare to actually
use full speed, even at nearly half the speed of
nBot's motors.

Also, nBot uses another set of spur gears between the
motor and wheel. You could recover your wheel's top
speed by altering the ratios of those gears, assuming
your drive train plans are similar.

Sluggy!
