Ok I'll relate two stroke cars to motor bikes. Those who remember the Kawasaki H3 750cc two stroke bike will no doubt know that it went like the clappers but needed ear plugs to ride teh damn thing.
These days the 4 stroke bike has much more power than the H3 but with a very wide band making it nice to ride.
Why no 2 stroke, well oil and smoke for one and as the cc's increases teh efficiency of 2 stroke deminish's.
But on little engines two strokes are the go, like model aeroplane engines etc.
