I would recommend using a caster oil based oil to start so the engine will break in properly (so a couple of tanks worth) and then switch over if you want to go the synthetic route.
But realistically, just use any higher end 2 stroke oil, and you should be fine. Personally, I do not trust the oils that say you can mix 70/100 : 1 , thats just to dodgy to me.
Also, always make sure you stay at the same ratio. If you run at 25:1... STAY at 25:1.

Motul Kart Grand Prix is a popular one - http://www.motul.com/
Motul Kart Grand Prix is a 100% Synthetic Ester oil. It is designed to be used in applications where one would normally run caster-based oils. In other words, this is a great premix oil for all kart engine applications other than Rotax.
Motul Kart GP is suitable for all types of gasoline, and is designed to withstand extreme conditions (23,000 RPM or high temperatures). It keeps the engine cleaner than traditional caster oils without any loss of lubricating performance.
Sold in 1.0L (1.05qt) containers.

Blendzall 460 Green Label Racing Castor oil will make more power but Maxima 927 castor/synthetic blend won't gum up powervalves (if your enginr has them) like the Blendzall will (any pure castor oil will).

I alwasy run Klotz synthetic. I know a ton of guys taht race the Yamaha Banshee 4 wheeler and swear by Klotz. If its good enough for a motor like the Banshee it is good enough for me. Never had any problems. My uncle also used Klotz in his racing go carts back in the day and ran them hard with not motor problems. Great stuff.

I have always liked Honda or Yamaha premix oil. Ran either in my dirt bikes for years! Never had a problem!
Amsoil is a favorite as well.
