|I've worked with the 370 4V and 2V on a number of occasions and it's a pretty solid motor. The only thing you need to keep an eye on is leaking. It's an easy motor to tune and keep running. It's more of a stump puller than a highway motor, but with your gearing you should move at a good clip.|
Hope that helps!
