None of those are very close to the motors I used. You probably want to look for something with closer stats.

Yes, that's what to focus on. They don't have to be exact. I would say as long as they're all within 2x it is worth trying.

Gave up and ordered the motor you used. Cost me a lot, but then im sure it works.

Do the motor get warm when in use? Thinking about making the wheel a bit diferent, with the motor build in (hidden).
