I was pitting for two guys running .12 Xceed engines on Saturday just gone.
We ran the DS5 and DS6-EM at a small track back to back.
The stock DS5 was consistently around 4/10 of a second a lap quicker around the track without any differences between the two in terms of gearing or clutch settings, the driver is a regular national A finalist.
Although the other driver running his DS6 was four wheel drifting out of every corner and saying the power delivery was insane and he was only 1/10 of a second off his best ever time around the track, and this guy has an EFRA championship he's no slouch!
I think if your DS5 is wearing thin and you need a good engine the DS6 is fantastic, but for the average joe if you can still pick up a DS5 you're not going to be disappointed with it!
The DS6-EM would probably have a much bigger performance advantage on a bigger track.
