I'm not a speed demon but I had a TLE 43 with 2.2 horsepower (similar to the Subies output) and it really struggled to get my 220 pounds up some of the hills around here.
The GT50R doesn't even break a sweat going up the same hills as it's about twice the horsepower. I don't plan on riding the GT50R at WFO throttle....going 15 to 20 mph is just fine for me-the extra power in reserve is really nice to have.
Run circles around the Subaru for how long?a week until it dies?You said your vacation was messed up becouse of this cheap engine you bought....Go with the Subaru or Tanaka or Honda and be done with it....
