Again John Thank you very much I will go to that link and check it out, 50mph would be a bit much for me but if something is capable of that it should have plenty of giddy-up for the 30 MPH cruise speed and should be very good on the hills also, 28mph is still pretty good for a cruise speed though, I would just like to have a 3-5mph more on the flat for a little quicker trips if possible.
Thanks again, and keep the good advice coming I really appreciate it.

There is a motor that is 4.2 HP and from what I hear it is of high quality....Here is the website....bb885
I hear people are getting top speeds around 50 with it....
Hope this helps....
