Thanks for that info thought are you turning it clock wise or counter? I was advised to change my 10.5 to 12, what does this mean or how far to turn it to get my timing to 12?

Look really closely to the position of the notches on the blue ring in comparison to the screw on the bottom of the motor. You can see its in different locations in all 3 pictures.

If you want more information about how timing effects a motor, look into the HomeMade dyno, has some really nice graphs.

Unfortunately there is no real way of telling on the Novak SS motors.

Novak Pre-Ballistic Motors
Advance timing --- turn the timing ring anti-clockwise

On the new Ballistic motors
Advance timing --- turn the end cap CLOCKWISE

Im really confused. Can some expert explain this?

do you have a ballistic? if so mine is still counterclockwise for advancing...`youre moving the end cap.. check your local track im sure someone have novak brushless.... and ask them.

I still have the old EX motors and Im planning to buy Ballistic motors
for 2010. Ive downloaded the Ballistic Motor Timing Guide and it clearly
says that to have advance timing, the end cap should be rotated
clockwise. http://www.teamnovak.com/tech_info/i...tes/index.html or
To adjust the Ballistic motor to this recommended 5 degree timing setting:
1. Loosen the three 1.5 mm hex‐head screws on the back timing cap of the motor.
2. Turn the end cap clockwise until the stationary notch on the end bell lines up to the
edge of the label.
3. Re‐tighten the three 1.5 mm hex‐head screws in a circular pattern to ensure that they
are evenly tightened.

A visual diagram or illustration would help.

Airflow,

you forgot to clearly read this

NOTE: If you adjust the timing to lower than the pre‐set factory setting of 30 degrees, the reversing function of your Novak ESC may not work properly. This 30 degrees of timing is accounted for in the speed controlís commutation sequence.

so that means turning 5 deg.. of timing clockwise is to lower the timing not to increase timing.. hope this help....... good luck with your racing...
