I in my experience, if you run lots of ballast, it helps to increase the CS and KDW settings, and decrease the NN setting.

In my 07 star I’m running something like KDW-180/NN-30/CS-930. Holds speed within .2 mph. at the end of the rope I can’t feel any variation in speed whatsoever
I thought the NN was the paddel wheel filter setting for if your on a river or something

I think of CS as how close to the set speed the cruise will back off accellerating. With a lower CS, I find the accelleration to reduce sooner than with a higher CS setting. If I crack up the CS, the boat will surge way higher than set speed. (without any ballast)

I wish these parameters can be set for each rider profile. Otherwise we have to find a setting that works with and without ballst.

Here are my settings for my 2012 X25;

KDW =230
Current: 2009 X-Star, Indmar 6L, 400hp, ZFT3 tower. c/w 1/9 scale R/C PWT X-Star
