Default timing on a modified motor? whats it do?

how does timing affect a motors performance? i was pretty sure that a higher timing gave you more torque, but im not sure. could anyone confirm this for me? thanks

moves the powerband around.

More timing gives less torque, more rpm. Less timing gives more torque, less rpm.

Big tracks use less timing and bigger pinions, smaller tracks use more timing and smaller pinions.

Higher winds like 15 turn motors use higher timing, lower winds like 9 turns use less timing.

Thats the simplified version, The "Big Jims Motor Forum" on the RCCARS.com website has more detailed information but you'll need to search for it.

Increased timing will also increase the amount of wear you see on your brushes and comm, and it will also give you more drag brake. Usually I will just use the timing on my motor to adjust the drag brake instead of changing the ESC settings since its faster to just give the endbell a little twist than have to go through all kinds of stupid programming steps.
