Default Novak 17.5

I need helo trying to figure out where the stock timing setting is on a Novak ribbed can motor. I got a new esc and I am thinking I am overtimed. When I turned the timing to the left the advance in my esc was alot better. I would like to know where they have them set factory if possible.

Zero is actually about 30 degrees of timing, from there you can add an additional 12-15 degrees with the timing ring depending on the motor.
If it smells burnt up.. it's more than likely hot.. you don't have to touch it..

Look at the slots on the yellow ring. Just make sure you center the ring slots with equal spacing by the solder tabs. That is about where all new Novak motors come factory set. I believe I heard someone said 18 is factory setting. Not sure how else to explain it but it is easy to do. Try it and you'll be fine.

All of our SS Pro, Velocity and Ballistic motors are factory set at @ 30 degree timing.

Here is a link to a PDF of our tech update for Ballistic timing:

Much of the info applies to the SS Pros also.
