Hi all, just wondering if it's ok to connect a driver board rated at 2.5 amp per axis to motors that are rated at 3.5 amps ?

Hi gaffa! Yes, provided the controller has a way of limiting its output to 2.5A. Of course, this will cost you about 30% of the motor's torque. IE, a 425 oz motor would effectively become a 300 oz. motor.
