By comparison i'm having to compensate by being smoother with the throttle on the handset with the speed passion, losing out time to others who can hit full whack sooner.
Pretty wild that one can make a stock hard to drive eh?

We run offroad so are particularly sensitive to this. Weve had good success in taming it when needed by adjusting the supercharger punch. When tractions allows its great to have the superior punch for jumps though.

It's not supposed to rotate unless the screws are loose. In fact even with the screws loose I have a hard time adjusting the timing.

M-Technic, any idea why my is really looose. The can screws are tight. I must be missing a part or something. I know that there is the two sillicone gaskets, the timing plate itself, the can cover and the 3 bolts. Any other parts supposed to be there? Any certain way for assembly?

The motor you have must be a very early batch of V3 motor. The newer batch does not have that problem. I do aware this situation only from the motor from early last year (2009).

You need a replacement sensor unit holder like this one.

i never think a toy,
those are a real scaled car, that no car yet ever available of this technology.
Infact f1 gp follow our world rc implementing ep power for more torque, during acceleration and corners.
And the first research, on Dynamic timing, born
at rc ep.
And some day implemented on full scaled cars.

Dont take this the wrong way, it is not meant as an insult but as person who works in the industry of REAL automotive development and also races toy cars, the above statements are the complete opposite of reality.

MarcosJ's setup is a great starting point (especially for the V3 motors) and it's posted all over this thread.
