Motors - Help.

Hi all,

Im wanting to build a faster bot but im not sure what motor to use, I currently have 2 x 100:1 MFA Como Drills motors on my bot, they are ok but are rather slow even at full speed.

I know I am wanting something of around 30:1 to get some decent speeds, is that correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
