Engine power determines potential top speed, though it isn't a direct correlation as doubling engine power doesn't double top speed. Your slider controls what percentage of your top speed you're currently going, and you have full maneuverability at any speed above 25%. Your defense bonus comes from your current speed, so a high potential but holding still results in no bonus (a negative bonus for holding still, actually). If you want to rely on speed to protect you, gotta keep moving.
