And I think I would leave the mechanical timing on the motor in the middle position just to play safe..thanks.

Does anyone know the ACTUAL motor timing on a DUO with endbell in the least advanced position? i.e. minimum timing is 0 deg or something else?

Seems to be anywhere between 0 to 12 degrees, depending on who you ask...

The actual number is a closely guarded secret. One could probably learn the recipe for Coca Cola, the Colonel's secret blend of 13 spices, and the location of Jimmy Hoffa before finding out the actual timiing of a brushless motor.

I just brought two 17.5 pulse ver 3 . I was thinking that these were the dou I was wrong. I got three laps in my sedan with the same gear ratio 4.1 as my hacker and the motor over heated. It was only 65 deg f. outside the track is large . I was very unhappy with this motor trinity over the years have been putting out good motor but not this one.

The DUO timing settings are 0, 10, and 20-deg. Most come at 10-deg stock, but I have seen them at 0 and 20-deg as well.

its 12 degrees on the lowest setting. there is a bunch of jacked up info about but i measured it and it is the same as the no timing change of the speed passion motor. 12 degrees. it can be about .5 degrees off since the timing tree and be installed a little twisted but it will get you close.

12 22 32 is the degrees on each hole

User failure isn't the same as bad product.
