My brother runs two types of sidecars on speedway - methanol-fuelled three-cylinder two strokes, and methanol-fuelled twin-cylinder 880 JAP and Vincents. With the two-strokes you get extreme horsepower and very smooth power delivery. With the Vincents and the JAP you get less top end power but a more lumpy delivery. The two strokes are lighter and faster but much more scary - you need nerves of steel where the others are much easier.. The race times are probably similar.
