Well, the 400A unit has a user-settable acceleration ramp (via a pot), and a couple of other adjustments. Haven't played with them yet.

I always found the 225A acceleration ramp to be sluggish - it definitely wouldn't give you 225A immediately from a standstill (though you could get it under way). And it would bog down in thick snow at low speeds (ie come to a stop, with no amps showing on the meter).
