And is that 45 degrees taking into account that Ballistics are factory set at 30 degrees without any endbell timing? Thus only 15 endbell timing?
From my experience Ballistics tend to take more heat punishment than most other motors on the market so have found them to be a little more ideal at stock level were you need to run a finer balance between lower FDR and higher turbo setups.
But what I am noticing more and more nowadays is that the end RPM is not as important as that initial burst of acceleration regardless of track size and technicality. How you achieve that without compromising too much I guess is the key in the end.
When I give 45 deg end bell, that is using the N=30deg of timing, so moving the sensor 3 marks over. When running with out turbo/boost, I have found that to be the best compremise over high rpm/torque, and keeping the motor temp in check. All I run is the Novak motors, and wont convert to anything else!
When running with turbo/boost ESC, I move the sensor ring the other direction, to the 15deg mark, and I found with my ESC that to be the best position (Hobbywing 120A 1S)
