Wahoo KICKR spin down times

A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

Hi guys,
what sort of spondown times do you get?
I've moved from a KICKR V1 (2015) to a V3 (2017) and have seen spindown times go from around 12-15s up to 38-50s. Also when you do the spindown it's quite hard to stay below the 22mph target as there's almost no resistance.
Anyone else had this?
Thanks
Chris

Oh maybe mines ok. Does it feel like there's almost no resistance when you are pedalling to the target speed?

Also do you compare it to a power meter?

there's very little resistance when pedalling to target speed. I do have to be in big ring to reach the 36kph though.
