The Time Shift function has 4 settings. Im not sure if the 4 steps represent 1 deg each? I have found that the higher the setting, the more heat is generated in the motor.
Going up a step is almost the equivilent of going up a tooth.
The turbo function gives the motor more voltage at the throttle endpoint resulting in more RPM's. Again this generates heat in the motor.
Getting these settings correct is very important to get the best performance from your motor. Running with too much advance, a very high ratio and the turbo boost setting on will result in a very hot motor that will only lose power as it overheats.
Personally I have found the best way to use the features is to start with gearing the motor correctly (I leave the timing on the motor at factory setting), try slightly undergearing the motor at first.
Then try a run with the turbo boost on which will give the car more top end speed.
Then try increasing the time shift setting 1 increment at a time.
This will allow you to find the sweet spot for your motor at most tracks.
