    Well, Im not too knowledgeable about motors, so try to keep explanations noob-friendly, shall we say, as I red from off the package. ^_^;

    I got two motors from radioshack that run on 9 to 18 volts. The number on the package says 273-256 and I think thats just an id number in case you want to find its specs.

    It runs at 18k RPM, has a stall torque of 350 g, and maximum efficiency torque is 72.0 g/cm.

    Anyways, these motors are going to be applied into a Sumo Robot which will enter a competition for fun; Its really a school module in an electronics course that needs to get done and the teacher is putting our bots in the local sumo competition as our exam in the module. :p

    Would two of these motors, when attached to a gearbox, be pretty good for this usage (Sumo Robot wrestling). ^_^;

    I wouldn't be able to say for sure but we have used the same motors in the Radio Shack that I work at to drill through light plastic. I dont know if that helps you but I dont really know the specs on just what that motor would be moving. Also what kinda torque it would need to do it. why not just use a ultra torque servo they go for $40$. Can you provide any info on the the "BOT" that you creating?
