P2K GP30 speed?

For what it's worth I've also noticed the new P2K GP30s run very slow. I have several and they're all significantly slower than other (Atlas, Stewart, Athearn, Kato, and even older P2K) brands. They're not bad, just a lot slower than the others (perhaps a more 'prototypical' gearing?). I'm not a DCC expert but if you use DCC, I think you can set top speed CVs to match the slower locos. At least that's how I plan to approach it whenever I finally get around to building a layout.

was able to run some new engines on a friend’s layout this
afternoon. For the first time I ran my new Athearn N&W SD45’s. They
ran great! I tried a new N&W P2K GP30 and the 45’s just dragged
it along. It appears to run about half speed of the Athearn's. I
didn’t have any of my older Athearn's or PPW or Atlas to compare it to.
So my question is that the P2K’s will only run with other P2K’s?
Thanks in advance,
