There are a few ways you can do that Ben. Dont know if you have a multimeter
or if you know VIR so my advise would be to just inform us of what motors
you actually have and what voltage you are running them at.

Someone out there has probably tried it already and can probably be more
helpful if they knew what you are doing.

If you are looking to install a fuse then why dont you rate it to just under
what your ESC/relays whatever can handle, THats really what you are trying
to stop from being damaged. Motors can take abuse for a lot longer than your
electronics and generally it pays to rate your motor to your electronics or
rate the fuse according to your electronics limit.
