Rover 5 Motor Issue ?

Hello all

This is my first post in this forum and I hope you can help me. I just got a Rover 5 ( the 4 wheel edition) and the Dagu 4 channel motor controller.

Everything is connected with my Arduino Mega and I have no problems to control the motors and read the current amp value from the motors. I noticed that the motors are consuming up to 1.6 A and I think this is too much ? The Rover was not touching the ground and the default chain was mounted on the tire ?

Should I try to make the chains more loose ?
