Question Advice or tips on some nice and raw sounding vst hi hats

So I've been experimenting a little with e-drums. I bought SD3 and it's decent, but the hi hats are really bothering me. It really feels generic and lifeless. I really like to have the open hi hats as open as possible, and really hit the life out of them to make it sound trashy and raw.
At this point I mic and record my zildjian hi hats physically afterwards because I'm not even close to being satisfied with the virtual results.

But are there any other expansion packs or different vst's that you guys are aware of that would maybe suit me better taking into consideration my descriptions? I want the whole spectrum from tight as a virgins asshole to open and trashy like your ex wife. Almost to the point where it sounds ridiculous.
It's kind of the same with rides too. It isn't that I would always use those "extreme" playing styles, but it really feels limiting to have everything dynamically stop at 70%.

Any takers? I'm a complete noob a virtual drumming, and maybe it's a terrible idea. But I'm hoping that some of you guys have a better feel for whats out there.
