here's facts I have at hand and can remember..
LRP motors are labelled with a range from 0 to 8, increments of 1
LRP motors are set by default at a "timing" of 2 on the motor can according to the label
LRP 3.5T manual says not to change the default timing from 2 for that motor (this bit i had always wondered why, but never changed it)
LRP "stock spec" motors appear to be locked at 2 degrees timing on the motor itself
here's what i'm concluding..
the default of 2 on the motor timing could correspond with the ESC base timing figure
it is possible that the base timing figure could be 22, which with the motors base timing of 2 would give 24 degrees of "timing" (a figure we all know and love!)
the 3.5T motor may draw too much current when set at a timing higher than this theoretical 24 degree timing, other motors not so much.
and lastly, the range of timing available with an LRP motor and LRP ESC could be 22+0 to 22+8 or 22-30 degrees.
what a theory!
