Topmodel Super Sport 3.0m vs Topmodel Gracia 3.07m

Hello,

I have a Topmodel Sport 2.35m glider at the moment but I want to get larger wingspan. I like the quality/price what I get from Topmodel. So I have to gliders in mind. When I look at Topmodels website for these two planes (their recommended setup) I see that with Super Sport they suggest MVVS 3.5/960KV motor and ~40A ESC, but with Garcia the MVVS 4.6/840KV and 60A ESC. Can anyone tell me, why such difference?

I am more into thermals, so I am leaning a little bit more towards Gracia (same airfoil and auw, but better wing loading). Right now I have the Turnigy Gliderdrive 3.5/960KV (with 40A esc) which has basically the same performance as the MVVS 960KV motor. Is it OK to use it in Gracia? I am not after any climb records, just to fly up there and look for thermals and have fun.

I can get Super Sport for 413 euros and Gracia for 379 euros. Any info/suggestions appreciated Thanks!
