Ay, leave us older, easy cruising, trailer pulling, don't want to mess with mixing guys enjoy our four strokers!
If you want go fast and save a few bucks the 2 poppers are the way to go, but if you want to leave your blinker on for 23 miles and hear yourself mumble while having a little more dependability consider a four stroke.
Both engines have there pluses and minuses, just do a little research and see what is a better fit for you. There are some great builders and kits on site that can fit your needs. Agree, though, that the electrics I looked at where heavier on the wallet for what I wanted.
