Default Motor or ESC Timing VS gearing for speed

Has anyone done extensive testing to find out what combination of motor timing, ESC timing, and gearing provides the best overall speed and corner exit acceleration? I realize track size, traction, motor type etc play a roll but that's why I'm posting this question. I think it would be most beneficial if the feedback was for 17.5 to 10.5 motors.

Thanks in advanced.

i run a speed passion 10.5 and gt1.1 speedy and on a fairly open track ive found that i never crank the timing more than level 6 of 8 which is 18.75 degree. On that subject though i think matching the timing with the gearing is important and then factor in the grip. i recently was running 43mm roll out on about 15 degrees of advance on the speedy and that was pretty awesome, i liked the feel. but gear the car right first and then adjust the advance for your punch. i reccomend not going below 10 degrees and not above 20. i think this because to low and the motor didnt spool and to high and it just revd all day like it never fully wound out. i was also using lipo (chargery)

i forgot to add that if it is hot and motor temps are toooooo high dropping a little advance drops temps a lot!!
