Hello :-) I have a question regarding the extrusion solution; Would the motors be strong enough if I take two of them, both with a MK8 Driver gear pulley, similar to the "dual pinch wheel" extruder?

Also, would it be advisable to take the 12v motors instead of the 5v motors if the price does not differ? Will it make a huge difference and can they handle a bit more speed, or will they just tend to live longer?

Thank you :-)
