One important conclusion about control loop rates:

There were debates on the Quaduino and other threads that discussed controller software, about what sampling frequency of the control algorithm is required for stability. some even exaggerated and said that 1000Hz is required. My own experience has shown 100Hz to work very well.

Now, if the response times are 80msec or slower, then I would guess you could safely reduce to loop rate to, say, 30Hz with no impact!
