Turn the feed rate up.
Just sounds like very low feed rate and because your using R&P with possible Low resolution then your motors are hardly spinning. Where as at rapid they are spinning at higher rpm so sound better.

They are still the same ones running at 36v Clive only I made up a gear box at a 3:1 ratio running far smoother now. Il work with the drivers until they die and then upgrade to a better set lol

edit Not sure who I have answered now Davo242 or Duffman !!
