I just want to clarify a few things since I'm not sure if I did my math right.

The max RPM for each of the front two wheels is 600RPM, and the max theoretical Horsepower is 2.5 for each wheel. But due to inefficiencies, I'm expecting maybe 300 RPM and 1.5 HP for each wheel.

From this, I can calculate the torque developed by each motor to be 315 in-lbs. However, I'm looking for a small, circular-shaped motor and it seems Orbital motors seem to fit the bill despite their 80% efficiency.

I have found a potential candidate for a motor that supplies more than enough max cont. torque and max cont. RPM at 80% efficiency here (specifically I've chosen the 2.8 cu in/rev motor).

Assuming I do go with this motor, I've been trying to find an axial piston pump (based on my wants that this needs to be a variable displacement pump) that can handle an input shaft speed of 2030RPM (that's the shaft speed of my intermediate shaft in my gearbox, which I intend to use two gears to connect my pump shaft and intermediate shaft), a total system flow rate of 10GPM, and system pressure of 589PSI.

So my two questions are:

A) Does the math make sense/motor selection make sense?

B) What kind of axial piston pumps might meet what I want? I can't find any axial piston pumps that meet my specs without it being overkill and extremely heavy.
