Default Motor timing

I have an old Trinity D4 11 turn motor that I'm thinking about putting in my TC3 this summer for some racing on a big asphalt track. This motor came with a car I bought a couple years back but I've never done anything with it until now. It has adjustable timing and I have no idea what the timing should be set at and I don't trust that it was right when I got the motor.

Anyone have any tips on how to set the timing right on this motor? I've always raced stock before so I'm completely in the dark on this.

12 degrees won't do any harm. Can should be marked for zero, you need to turn the endbell anti-clockwise as you look at it, making sure it is attached the right way and the motor does not spin in reverse.
