It is a drastic difference, IMO.
I over-pronate so the Racers just don't work for me. My foot just moves inward way too much. The trainers are more stable, albeit still a "neutral" shoe, and I wear them just fine with no pronation issues (bear in mind I don't run in these at all--strictly casual. I run in LG4s). The Racers are a performance neutral with no support.
So if your foot is fairly neutral and you don't pronate, then you should be fine. I love the racers, it just sucks I can't wear them.
Also I've found the Racers to fit .5 size bigger than the Trainers (super thin socks in trainers). Racers are TTS for me and trainers are .5 size down. Hope that helps a bit. There isn't much discussion here about stability for these shoes.
