I do not recall what is in the DS, it is called the Bad Boy, GE motor. My Precedent has a GE D1163.

I do not know about PQ, but I find it hard to believe it would be a brand issue, more like the power requirement of each specific motor.

Ok I had enough time to drive it today but I didnt put the cable in and read the settings, Ill do that tomorrow. After knowing what to look for I could kinda make it accel jerky if I tried. If I accelld smooth then it would too.

Well Lmswest, I finally stuck the computer back on. I decided to test the throttle up rate which was on 7 and moved it down to 1. Guess what no jerk start at all, but starts out and accelerates very slowly, compared to 7. Played around with it for awhile and even put the new custom map on and guess what? I settled at 3 on throttle up and with the new map I get 98-100% throttle and picked up a couple MPH top end and it is now pretty smooth at slow take offs.

So I would say I am pretty happy with it now, guess it just takes a little patience and programming/testing, thanks for making me stay with it as opposed to trying a new controller, that saved me $500

Depending upon which throttle program you choose, 5 and up can be too quick, unless you are looking for a radical start...
I like the progressive throttle pattern for the smoothest start with 3- 5 up and 6-8 down.

Yea I liked inductive but since I set at 3, the custom map now gives me full throttle which I was only getting about 90% on inductive.

I'm using a GE controller. No complaints here and it is not jerky at all.

Does the GE control have adjustable pots?
