Long time ago, there is the existence of few cars with 2-stroke engine. As we all know, the benefit of using of the 2-stroke engine is in the lightweight construction and higher output about 40% more powerful than equivalent 4-stroke engine. For example, motocross racing in USA has replaced 250cc 2-stroke bike with equivalently powerful 450cc 4-stroke bike. Engines with 2-stroke system are much easier to maintain as they are fewer parts to look out for, whereby 4-stroke engine need more love and care.
