They will both be fairly fast out of the box, but you'd need to do a lot of upgrading to reach the 30 - 35 mph of bad handling. The 700 style motors are real workhorses, designed for continuous high duty operation in hand tools. To get similar or superior performance from 2 x 550's, modified motors would be needed, which are fine, but do need a lot of time and money spent on maintenance to keep them working well. At comparable speeds, the 2 x 550's would probably draw more current than 1 x 700.
