550 motors have less RPM and more torque/power. They reach their max performance at less RPM but they draw more current

540 motors = V8 engines
550 motors = V8 diesel engines

In the real world, the only class where I would use the 550 motor is 4x4 short course which needs the extra motor torque due to their weight and 4wd drivetrain. In all other classes the 540 is a better choice.
