i have a pinger and thumpers and it really make a big improvement over 93 pump
i run 50/50 in the pinger and the lead helps 2 strokes by raising the temp
i run it straight in the thumpers and the lead is supposed to help lube the valves
either way it wont hurt a thing and any good race gas with contain lead...
no it not only allowed in competition either...and yes my local gas station has it at a pump...so no bs about either

Lead does nothing for four strokes, only 2 strokes.
Why would you say that? Most Race Cars (NASCAR, Dragsters) run Leaded gas so that they have less VALVE failures. Last time I checked I didn't have any Valves in my 2stroke.

no one uses race gas?
I use the VP U2 fuel in my 2 stroke. It's leaded, oxygenated and 101 octane. I mix it 50/50 with 91 pump fuel. I use it because it makes the bike run alot crisper and more responsive. I did not notice any REAL gain in power. So, for me, it's a good thing as I don't need anymore power. The 200 EXC has plenty of guts.
