it could be more than the punch setting. a missing fet on the low end will make your car feel like an on/off switch.

The setting you need to change (if it is working properly) is the power control 2 setting. it is kinda like traction control, for high grip, set it to 5, I have had 2 of these and think they are great, for TC, I use #4, for 2wd id suggest starting at #3.


best of luck...
