Default Sanwa M17 setup for 2WD Buggy

Hello -

New to the sport, building a buggy (B6.4D) to race and I have some questions on how to best setup my transmitter. Logically, it makes sense to use Point and start at (lets say, 15%), so that 1% of my throttle pull puts me at 15%, which leaves 99% of my remaining throttle pull open to a curve. But I'm also looking at Speed/Forward, which will smooth out full pulls (for long straights, for example). Seems like the curve settings along side the speed/forward settings may fight each other, with me being the loser lol. I also seem to find more drag race guys using Point, and thats where it may be more appreciated. Does this make sense? I hope i've explained everything correctly here. Does anyone use Point and/or Speed/Forward and if so, can you talk to me about how they co-exist. Oh, it also seems like (looking at the TX screen) that if i'm slow on the throttle, the point value isn't honored. Only when I quickly go from 0 to 100 do i see it jump and then slowly climb up (based on my forward rate).

There is a huge topic about that transmitter.

I think most racers do play with some settings because it is also depending the driving character of the car and the setup of the ESC. Most throttle adjustments are done on the ESC.

For racing set the throttle to linear and brakes to taste (using dual rate).
