At our local track we have been racing 5800's and 19T together all summer. I would say the motors are almost identical power wise...they certianly are identical lap time wise. The 5800 has a little more bottom end grunt but a good 19T may have a little more top end. It all works out.
Check the Pro 19 results at www.speedlinehobbies.com
over the last few months. The field is 50/50 19T/5800. You tell me if you can spot anyone with and advantage.
The guy that wins most of the time, Dave Croy, runs a CP Money 19T. I won last weekend running an Orion 19T. Protc3 (Jason Breiner) won a few weeks ago with his 5800. The guy that drives the best and has the best car setup usually wins no matter the motor he runs.
I am getting a 5800 just because I pit with protc3 all the time and I get mad when I have to thrash to cut motors and he is just hanging out chillin.
