yes, but you also need speed to reach/follow your opponent... moreover I can reduce speed if I need it.

I'm sure you're also aware that shield resistance and regeneration is associated with your power levels. While the latter may not be as important, the former makes a pretty big difference in how much damage you can take before you lose your shields.
I know, but I prefer to buff my shield's enery level using EPtS and if you are in a team a good eng with a cruiser can buff your power or extend his shields... You can buff your shields regeneration rate with the appropriate passive of the reputation system.

I can resist for a while if my shields are down, but it's more difficult to resist if someone drain your engine power and stop you.
