Unhappy brushless timing

hi i would like to know what effect will the timing be on a lrp vector 5.5 .
It has 0 ,2 ,4 ,6 ,8 as timing and i would like to know what it will do if i raise the timing (0, 2 ,4 ,6 ,8 ) or if i decrease it (8,6,4,2,0) will it have more torque more power more rpm ? i dont know my standart timing that came with the motor is 2

Thanks alot if you could help me out

From my understanding, it mostly moves the powerband around, NOT increase or decrease power.

You are better off leaving the motor timing alone (stock setting), and changing the gearing slightly in your RC with Brushless motors.

Personaly I just wouldn't change it at all. The way it comes is the way lrp has set it so that it works best. I've heard some people changing the timing on the lrp's and they only advance it by no more than about 2mm. Unless you really know what you are doing its not a good idea. On other forums i've heard of people wrecking brand new motors by changing the timing on a brushless.
