Default Adjustable Timing

What exactly does the adjustable timing change on motors and how does it effect performance.

more timing will increase performance at the expense of efficiency.

Most motors work at their best with timing between 12 and 18 degrees.

+Timing = More RPMs, Less Torque, higher Amp draw

-Timing = Less Rpms, More Torque, less AmpDraw.

When determing the best timing point, the objective is to have the best combination of those three components. Most motors usually are pre-adjusted at the factory (particularly the hand-wound Mods), so the best bet is usually to try and keep the factory settings. If you can't be exact, the range Sosidge suggested is a good guestimate .
