Default Altrax SPM500 controller map

I have read on here many times about having the 'right' controller map for the particular motor someone has so based on that I decided to call Alltrax and see what they recommended for me.

I provided them with all the settings in the controller, told them what motor I have (Bandit), and other details like tire size, terrain, and personal preferences (torque over speed) They advised that my settings were the default ones sent out with all their controllers and no changes needed to be made, that the factory ones were optimal. Max amps and all the curves default.

That leads me to a point of confusion if I am being told correctly that noting needs changing or if any improvements could be obtained from other settings. If nothing needs changing, that sort of defeats the purpose of a programmable controller.

The one and only thing they said I could change from default is the throttle rate from 12.5% to 30% which would make it appear to have more torque by making the foot pedal travel more responsive but it didn't actually provide any more torque, just the sensation of it.

Am I missing something and that the factory settings are optimized already?

A field map is for a sepex/shunt motor it is n/a for a series motor.

I guess the answer is yes, I was missing something. Thanks for the clarification.
