It may help if you provide a bit more information about the vehicle. Do you know what brand it is? Do you know anything about the current motors in it -- are the 550-series or something different? Are there distinguishing markings on the motors that would help you identify the current capability? etc.

You said it was radio controlled -- is this a kid's ride-on toy or a smaller RC truck (in which case you'll be much better off in an RC forum).

You may also see if there is enough information in the Motor Database Sticky to help you or not.

So Lama Toys is a distributer/retailer but it's not the manufacturer of the Jeep. I couldn't find "Jeep Adventures" but did see a couple of Jeep's being sold by Lamas Toys that match D3v1L's description minus the "4x4.". The Jeep's appear to be identical in specs to the single seater PW Limited Edition Jeep Wrangler but if the one being described is really a 4x4 then it's not the same one.

D3V1L are you saying that you the current motors are RS540's or equivalent?

MHO, this particular setup isn't likely a good fit[…]
