I know motor temp can be really slow, even in human terms. I'd also make it a pretty rough (like 8bit number) Is that temp1 or temp2?
Throttle could also be pretty slow, but I'd probably sample every 1/10 second just to make it "feel" smooth, along with a finer resolution number. It may not even be possible to sample that infrequently...

It's kind of like Edward said - it's not a CNC machine or robot. Considering all the mass (not just the motor - the car) and lag times involved it can be pretty rough - and still WAY smoother than an IC car.
