I have wired a couple of the ones with china drives in series to slow them down a bit. ESU also has a nice feature CV54 that sets up the motor to function with the decoder. in programing on the main you set CV54 to 0 then exit program on the main and hit F1, the loco will take off at full speed for a coupe of feet then stop. after that it will run much better , it will probably fix catnap's bucking problem on starting or stopping.

Since you two aren't having any detrimental issues, that does make me feel better about installing the LokSound 5L in two motor locomotives...should that come to pass.  I did see where some had issues when using the auto feature that you mention that it would set the maximum voltage CV too low and it was necessary to manually adjust.
