I got mine up to about 65lbs with Cushcore, DD tires, Coil Rear, and the Overtimepack...I can confirm that its an absolute RIOT on the trails.  Climb, SMASH, and never worry about traction.

I've got the same bike and have been loving it.  Personally the minimalist characteristics of the remote have been a plus, but I will agree with you that seeing the actual battery life and settings in real-time are helpful.  It looks like the model you got has the updated controller with the ANT+ compatibility.  I hooked mine up to my Wahoo Element so I can see both the battery life and settings while I ride and its been amazing so far. 

Rocky also makes a bottle adapter that allows you to run a bottle slightly to the left or right of the sock and I've found its far enough forward that I don't have any contact while pedaling.  You can even run 2 bottles at the same time if you want.

Finally, I set mine up with Cane Creek Inline Coil and the new Overtimepack...WHAT A HOOT!  I highly recommend.
