It's going to take me a while to decipher that OP.
Give me a week or so.
Actually, no. I'm going to go with my normal response I use at work.
Best, you ask? No such thing. Products advance over time, and lately they do so quickly. Yesterday's best isn't today's, and you can go ahead and interpolate (or would it be extrapolate?) that to the moment.

OK anyway, I have no idea. I'd use the same thing I put in a chainsaw.

What is different about your "high end racing cylinder" than a 50 cc Chinese one?

Ring gap is less? piston clearance is different? piston speed higher? compression is higher? Runs hotter? I doubt any of the above but...

The obvious choice would be Stage6 oil as they made the cylinder.

Or use strawberry scented oil from , say, Ipone if you want to be special.

The real answer for everyday use is some good quality synthetic 2T oil that is easy to obtain. For my modified NSR250 I use Shell Advance VSX semi-synthetic because it is available at almost all Shell stations where I live. It may not be absolutely perfect,ie. fully synthetic, but it is available so I won't run out 500 kms from home. I doubt you will be 500 kms from home on a 70 cc scoot but...

I doubt in Texas there are many snowmobile stores but anything they use would also be good.

If you want the absolute dogs bollocks then use Castrol A747. Not cheap but you did ask.

Not relevant to your location but relevant to ease of supply. In UK a lot of Lambretta guys with or without modified air-cooled scoots use Rock Oil's Groundsman semi-synthetic 2T oil from garden centres also because it works and it available and inexpensive. They buy it by the gallon.

Go to Wallmart and see what fully synthetic 2T oil they have?

Yeah there aint shit Im texas lol
Yes it has 14:1 comp ration piston speed is definitely higet and does run hotter it's simple facts. Also Im not doing every day riding I'm riding in a road course track soo. I'll look into the s6 stuff, I've ran that Walmart grade oil and it sucks ass and put big score marks in my 50cc cylinder soo I don't trust none of that crap.

Castrol A747 https://www.castrol.com/en_au/australia/products/motorcycle-and-scooters/racing-oils/a747.html
but you can't mix it with other oils in the same tank. If not using pre-mix. If using premix drain the tank first. There are probably guidelines somewhere.

Get it from a kart shop. Where of course you can also find other oils. But 747 is the dogs bollocks.

14:1 are you experimenting with Mazda SkyActive auto-ignition technology Razz emoticon

For track use a J Costa variator as well I hope? JC211 now IT211

I'll get me that variator. There's like a atv go kart shop like 10 miles away which is surprising becuase here in texas all we got is what-a-burger, a bunch fat people, pick up trucks, and guns lol thanks.

I use Agip motor oil from Italy. It is the manufacturer recommended oil for Vespa & Ducati. They actually changed their name to the parent company (ENI) a few years ago, but you can get the motor oil in the U.S

Phone number is: 646-264-2100

That Royal purple stuff? Don't worry you're fine, it IS the best for you!

OP is wanting to build a bleeding edge hi RPM race motor, so he needs to do his homework. What oil do those w/ highly tuned revvy motors use and have fewest problems with? That's what you can look for. waspmike's talking this stuff, I cant.

Me, with mostly stock or mildly tuned motors, I just get a good brand name synthetic like Putoline or Motul along w/ several others and have had zero oil problems and no coking up issues like in the old days w/ dino oil. I DO like oil that colors the gas so it's easy to know premixed from plain gasoline. Like Royal purple!

Thread title is a bit misleading, different strokes for different folks and most of us aren't usually racing highly tuned motors.

Which engine is more highly tuned?

Motorbike?
Normal road car ?
Big rig motor?

Which sector spends more on oil technology and testing?
Which sector spends more money on fancy names, exotic origins, claims, colours, smells etc.?

Serious question: What's the difference between cheap 2 stroke oil and expensive 2 stroke oil... other than the price?

Quote:

Pretty sure it didn't Your *rings* put those scuff marks there. If somebody were to ask me why that happened, my first thought would not be "cheap 2 stroke oil".

510 is a blend of petro and synthetic oils.
710 and 800 are both fully synthetic, but 800 has a higher temp rating, i.e. for racing applications.

For your application, I really like Maxima Castor 927. I run a Polini Corsa on a honda af16 that regularly sees 12k on the tach, it works really well. The downsides: it smells like burnt castor oil and is colorless, so label your cans clearly. You don't want to smoke out the neighborhood when you mow your lawn, I can tell you from experience.

What I meant was the shitty oil was too thin and at high rpm it thinned out even more and the rings messed it up. Also the difference is the crappy oil is petroleum passed vs the others are castor and synthetic and some are synthetic/castor mix
