Default Re: Is the GEBE with Tanaka 40cc right for me?

Welcome to the forum. I'm not very familiar with the Tanaka. Subaru Robin's have a strong following.
For hill climbing, a 2 stroke motor with a jackshaft shift kit seems to be preferred on this forum, as you can gear down on climbs to maintain your RPMs.
Check out the legal forum and find some posts on your VA laws. Some states
have engine size limits, some are electric only, and believe it or not, Hawaii is gas only.
