Hey Devin - what size motors did you spec out for your scrubber? I'm looking for something that will be fast.

I would probably go with a 37d motor from Pololu. Lots of different rpm to choose from. Depends if you are putting a wheel directly on the motor shaft or using any additional gearing.

A starting place would be to figure out how many feet per second you'd like it to move, and then you need the diameter of the wheel, and we can do the math to find the right motor speed.
