Yeah ive tried all different percentages... My rs's dont like drag brake... I can easily use my buddy's hobbywing with db and its a world of difference...

Running the RS is one of your first mistake! Not smooth on throttle, or on the brakes.

I have to agree, I didn't try a gen 2, but I put a gen 1 in a car for a day, and it didn't stay in there more than 2 packs, they just feel weird.

Hobbywings are really nice for the price. I like my Vipers the best so far, but if I switched it would be to Hobbywing.

Also definitely reccomend the AE app. RC Cheat Sheets app. Will help give you a guide of what tuning to try under limited timeframes.
Cannot find that app on Android. Is it iPhone only?
