Well, there are plenty of things one can do to improve performance, but the
better question is whether or not one can maintain something physically sensible
at the same time :) For implicit solvent, at least in my own experience, the
only way I get stable trajectories is with the infinite cutoff approach. Some
advocate a "long cutoff" scheme with all cutoffs set to something like 2.0 or
4.0 nm, but that's never worked for me, either.
You also should never judge performance from EM alone.
