second, what is the largest motor kit i can buy? im a big guy and need somthing with a high amount of torque and horse power to get me going at +40 mph.

< I can only say, "That's a bit of a tall order there". >

third, which is better, a dry roller or drive chain? i also want to do some basic mods like porting, air intake, small amount of aerodynamic work, ect. anything to get going faster.

< I only know drive chains and they work well enough for me. Somebody with friction drive will have to chime in now. >

one big problem i have noticed is the amount of these motors are coming from
china, are there any american made kits?

< There ya got me. >
thankyou in advance
< Hope I was able to help a little. >
