Exclamation Best 2 stroke oil to run?

ok so i have had my 5t for quite some time and just curious whats the best 2 stroke oil to run?? I run castor 927 and i am happy with it, is there other 2 stroke oil that will give you "more power or more torque"??
Thanks

personally i like castor 927 myself but there are lots of options i would stick with 1 brand of oil but thats just me. Castor 927 is one of the better oils available.

I used to run Maxima Super "M" and had no problems. It was sold out last time I needed oil, so I am now running Maxima 927. So far so good! I say use a brand that motocross engine builders used when 2-strokes ruled!

Check out motorcycle dealerships or even scooter dealerships. That's where you'll see the better 2 stroke oils.

I used be a parts and service manager at a powersports dealer, we sold amsoil the customers that actually ran it had 3 times as long between rebuilds over any other oil we sold. it runs super clean the racing 2 stroke oil is recomended to mix 100-1 in my own stuff ( chainsaws,snowblowers and such) i fatten that up just a bit to be safe. ive got six midwest winters on a snowblower and havent even had to change a plug. its really good stuff. hope this helps
