Hi Stefan. The EBB uses some very simple math to determine the time between steps, based on the number of steps in the SM command, and the amount of time that you ask the move to take. There are some higher steps speeds (like you’ve found) that cause this math to ‘break’ and give incorrect results (i.e. motors go crazy). Because the EBB never needs speeds this high, the existing firmware is just fine for normal EggBot use. But you’re in a special situation!
