I always get maxed out speeds of 565kB/s on my torrents, if there are seeders of course.

then i download a app with heaps of leacers and like 5 seeders and get 180 kbps .
Obviously. You have your connection limit set low. I would say 50-100 incoming connections, which isn't a lot. It doesn't matter how many seeders there are, it matters how many your connected to. Most default connection limits on torrent programs are 50. I changed mine to 500, and I get maxed out speeds almost every time.
