How do I confirm that RA tracks the sky properly and is not fast/slow? And how do I tune it?

Hi, I've built a MiniPCB v2 on a Vixen GP.

I have a rough polar alignment (Can't see Polaris) with a compass, some drilled holes in the ground, and latitude scale on the mount.
When I sync to a star, using a 114mm f/8 Newtonian with 20mm EP, I find that within 15 mins the star is out of view already.
