I would have to go back and look up my d11 thread, I used the bigger wiper motors and chain / sprockets to get final track sprocket somewhere in the 28-30 rpm range if memory serves correct. Still running the same motors from build and they have a lot of pushing time on them. 4 sets of track pins and two sets of track chains so far, motors keep turning, and they never have stalled. .
