Well you can change alot of different things to smooth it out. You can try low start power, lower timing, changing the throttle curve, a little bigger dead band setting, use a lower punch control like 90% and work you way down a little til you get the results your looking for.

I did drive a SP at are track last week a guy has and he uses the 5700 motor in it and the thing rips. It had plenty of power thats for sure.

Default drag brake

Any suggestions on setting the drag brake to feel like a brushed motor setup? I'm thinking 30-40% feels about right.

On my Mamba Max I use 25 to 30 on most tracks and with the Sidewinder I need to go higher at 40%. I use the 4600 in my 2wd buggy most of the time but every now and then use the 5700 but use the same drag brake settings.

Thanks all who responded. Turns out the motor was shot. Sent back to Team Orion.
