    Yeah the 12V motors are more powerful than the others, but as this isn't carrying any lift up you should be fine with upgearing some other motor.

    Yes, it's essential to get a good wheel shape for the wheels to grab

    WOW. You do realise there is only 1 of this kind of Ferris wheel on the world, which is also the largest? Great job I wondered when someone would make one they are a real challenge.
