Q:  Since the back emf torque compensation feature make consisting a real headache, I would like to know how to switch that feature off. Prototype loco's don't have such a thing so that slowing on a grade isn't really a bad thing in a model, either.

A:  You can turn turn the speed stabilization on or off with CV57.  The CV value range for CV57 is 0-15.  If CV57 = 0, speed stabilization is OFF.  If CV57 = 15, speed stabilization is fully on.  All values in between let you scale how much speed stabilization you will use with each locomotive.
