I agree 100%, Watts does not neccessarily mean the best motor.
I can see someone cutting off there finger soon.
HORSE POWER is POWER , WATTS is what we use for HORSEPOWER.
Your right inso far as it doesn't mean it's your best motor...some tracks are better with TORQUE than HORSEPOWER..and Some lower horsepower motors spool up quicker with HIGH RPM and suit a drivers style..but with lower WATTS or HORSEPOWER it's much easier to overgear...and kill the power band of a motor. A motor with MORE power usually has a tad wider power band and is a little more forgiving. (At least from what I've experienced)
I still maintain - you give me a HIGHER POWER (HORSEPOWER) motor and I can make it outrun your RPM motor. (I won't say I can OUTDRIVE the other guy - cause my driving SUCKS)
