Mod Motor ???

How does the timing marks on a Mod motor work???

The can is marked with black marks, to the right....
and White marks to the left...

What is used as the refence point on the endbell??
There are several marks and of course the screw.

Which way is advancing the timing?

Thanks,
M2Racing

to the right increases timing and apm draw. this increases rpm but at a price to the comm. the comm will get burnt quicker and arch more. brushes will last a shorter time. to the left decreases timing and lessens the amp draw. this increases torque. this decreases comm arching. a larger track you generally want more timing. for a shorter tighter track you want a little less timing.

Thanks,

I wasn't for sure so I thought I would ask...

What I ended up doing was runing the motor while adjusting the endbell, until I found the best RPM then backed down a little.

As it was when I began, the motor had 2 marks of negitive timing, and was soft on the track.

I should have improved it.

motors usually dont come with positive or negative timing
