    Hi. I originally built one of the 65cc thatsdax 2 stroke frame mount, and really enjoyed the torque it had. I can't remember what size sprocket it came with, but it pulled from a dead stop to around 33 mph. I would like to try a rack mount this time, and wondered if there are any 4 stroke engines around 50-100cc that can give about the same amount of power (I'm not sure how much hp/torque the 65cc engine makes so I have no comparison). I would even go 2 stroke again, if I could find a pocketbike engine under 400 dollars. Any input is appreciated!

    Well, I can't really say for certain but I've gotten the impression that the typical rack mounts have more or less the same power as the happy times.

    Someone will follow me who knows for sure.

    Have fun.
