Default Motar degree timing?

My Super rooster ESC says that modified motars should be timed at 0* I believe my 9T is at 10* I have no tools other than screw drivers and allan renches. Is it possible for me to fix this. If so how?

first thing release the brush springs then pull the brushes out a little the there will be 2 screws oposite each other on the endbell undo these a little then just twist the top so that the lines on the can meet up with the lines one the endbell evenly this means 0 deg of timing.

be aware that your batteris will go flat faster the car will take off a little faster and have more touqe but less top end speed if u dont understand i can give u a pic

Dear Sir,

Can you tell if I am correct ?

Say +10 degree = higher end speed, lower low end torque ? Or Vice Versa ?

Motor timing is slightly more complex than that.

First point - leaving the motor at it's factory-set timing is best for most people.

Second point - the Super Rooster is only saying 0deg (maybe referring to a twin motor setup?), for a single motor leave it with the standard advance.

Timing is advanced by turning the endbell anti-clockwise as you look at it. Motors perform better with a small amount of advance.

Small amounts of advance (6-12 degrees) improve efficiency, and give a small increase in power.

Large amounts (18-24 degrees) increase power, but efficiency drops off. Going too far will make a very innefficient motor, and eventually the power will start to drop off.
