Honestly I would lean towards a more damped control (only slight mushiness). Most have not driven electric cars extensively and would not be able to say whether the pi loop was miscalibrated (barring major hiccups) while just driving the car.

But if it's just a tad too aggressive, then the weenies come out saying how the open source controller is too jerky. Why do you think every single OEM car comes out with built in mush... in the sway bar mounts, engine mounts, transmission mounts, sometimes the body mounts - to appease the weenies that whine about little things they don't like. Most cars would handle much better out of the box with better mounting, but you might feel the engine idle or the transmission shift, horrors! *runs in terror to bed* goodnight! (it's late here with the east coast time zoning)
