Less than 500 kb/sec Rclone Google Drive speeds

Really Slow Speeds with Rclone (less than 500 kb/second). ETA never seems to go down. Have run this command multiple times. No dice.

Try simplifying your rclone copy command and run on a reasonable sized directory
rclone copy --filter-from rclone-filter.txt --verbose --stats 5m --fast-list --log-file=/home/connor/rclone_2021.log /home/connor/ GoogleDrive:Laptop_Ubuntu18/home

What speeds are you expecting to get?

With Google, you can only create 2-3 files per second so very small are a bad use case and you'll always get poor performance.

Second, your actual command makes it worse as you have 40 transfers and 40 checkers and you only get about 10 API hits per second with Google so you are slowing it down even more.

Start with defaults and go from there.

Lots of this you see in the debug log, which is why we ask for that log as part of the template information.
