What temperature does it come off at?
Going from 4.3 to 4.7 is a big jump in gearing - I would never make that big of a jump, once you are in the ballpark you only need to go one tooth at a time to find the sweet spot.
Also, going "all the way up" with timing is mostly likely going to be far too much.
Sounds like you just need to experiment more with small steps (like half a notch as on the team powers cans). Go to around 4.4 gearing and slowly bump up the timing and run it for 4 or 5 minutes, periodically checking the temp.
I am to have my motors come off no lower than 150* and no higher than 180* so I work my gearing and timing until I achieve that.
If you bump up the timing and see a big increase in heat and a decrease in speed (or no change in speed) then you went too far. Back it off a bit and run it again. Then you can tweak your gearing from there.
