It would be counter clockwise. I also assume the center line is 0 degrees and I move the slash mark towards the right of the "0" mark to increase timing. I hope this helps you in what you're trying to do. I'll be trying 0 degrees of timing along with the new settings I was given for the Orion speed control. I'll let you know how that goes after the weekend.

I was told by Pillars that each line is 4 degrees

the "-3" that most of us are running is turning the endbell clockwise (retarding the timing). It will depend on the timing setting in the ESC as well...

Now that I think about it, my conversation with him was an older one in regards to the 2008 Race V1, perhaps a little different on the V2's?

From what I've seen of the Tekin speedo you may want to run O timing on the motor and max boost. This is with the 13.5/10.5 motors though.

I'm not too sure what to set it at either. I have only run the Orion 13.5. Maybe try going on the Tekin thread and ask what they run their 7.5 motors at and then try the same on the Orion. Once you get a good setting with the 7.5 please share with the rest of us Good luck and happy racing.
