loosen the 3 screws at the endbell and twist the end cap. to the left is advancing the timing, to the right is retarding the timing. use a timing jig to determin how many degrees to the left or right you're adjusting the timing

What will be the reaction of my motor if i increase the "advancing" timing?
same as changing the degree to "retarding" what will be the effect?

The more timing you have the more RPM's you will have and the opposite when turning the timing down. Be aware if you advance the timing on your motor it will get hotter faster.

With that said, advancing the timing isn't always needed. It is a tuning option that can be used, but if you don't really know how to take advantage of it you don't need to use it. There are other ways to go faster.

Brushless after a 5 minute run should be about 160-175 degrees F according to novak

IMHO Brushless because;
1) levels the playing field far more wiht these motors as tuning yields very minimal differences as compared to brushed.
2) far less maintenance
3) no fade as motor gets warmer
4) not sure how many more runs per motor but I think it is likely 2-3x (or more)the number of runs out of properly maintained brushed.
5)the move away from brushed is happneing very fast making much of the brushed stuff worthless in resale.

Also longer runtimes so your batt wont fade as much by the end of the run
