yeah bro , ya wont go wrong with the ss 5800, as they said tons of torque, but top end is limited, really good for tight tracks where punch is the order of the day. maintinence, pretty much nil.
Be really good for practice, thats how i use mine, long run times, fast , no maintinence, and reliable. i've never had a thermal or any problems, fully recomend, especially for the applications you propose.
good luck mate
