My comment wasn't explicit enough, so your confusion is definitely justified.
I prefer my NA because of emotional reasons, and the added power of the RL isn't enough to overcome that. An additional factor is that the NAs seem to be more reliable, so I expect that i will be able to drive it longer with fewer repairs.
As far as "less chance of getting you in trouble", I have been stopped twice in the NA, once with a ticket and once not, although both were justified, against never in the RL. The RL also has stability control that the NA does not, and that has nearly been a factor a couple of times. So all things considered that isn't a consideration.
The NA handles just as well as the RL in my opinion, and within the limits of quasi-legal driving it is just a fast, except for acceleration. I find that the slightly more compliant suspension actually makes it easier to drive fast over broken pavement. I have driven in, and led, many group runs in my NA and, except for my desire to stay within sight of the posted speed limits, have never heard complaints about slowing down the run.
Clearly if the ability to accelerate is a significant requirement you will never be happy with an NA. It isn't for me, so I can be.
