FWIW, methinks its performance in the shift kit and the pipe.....

and "tucking in".

I seriously considered twin DAX GT50r engines on my Project 29er, but.....


Maybe twin GP460's.
The Tanaka would be a nice powerful engine to have,but I wanted a 4 stroke so I could just pull up to the pump and filler up,no fuss no muss....The 1.6HP is plenty for me,I travel at a average speed of 26MPH with the GEBE kit and Subaru engine.....I honestly dont think the GEBE belt could handle much more power than I have....
IF I CANT FIX IT,IT ISN'T BROKEN!....ummmmmmm so I thought....
