The frame-transformation theory of electron scattering from molecules is critically examined near the limits of its range of applicability and the sensitivities of the rotational and vibrational cross sections on the transformation radius are quantitatively investigated. To partially correct for the breakdown of this theory near excitation thresholds, an energy-modified approximation is introduced.
