Questions?? Tuneing a ESC or Gearing???

Any tuneing tips anyone can provide. I have a Speedpassion GT2.0 and I was told the best way is to keep the timeing maxed out and only change the gearing. another way is do it by the sound of the motor,that you want to "hear" it maxed out at the end of the streight. I understand takeing out timeing give you bottom end but you lose speed any of this true. there has to be advantages and losses to each choice so any way to help me understand how they can work together for the best performance will help alot. and I cant figure out why when I turn my Tx on first! then my Esc the tires will want to turn for about 3 seconds. is it having a problem finding nutural? dosnt happen all the time. I use DSM and its a 21.5 Novak motor.

When you advance the timing on the motor, you increasing the RPMs. But in turn, you'er loosing torque. An equal and opposite reaction happens just the same, when you retarde the timing. It's a lot like gearing. So, when you jump it a larger pinion, you'er getting more top-end speed, but loosing torque. Timing is just another way to get extra speed, without playing with the gear ratios. Timing is best used when there is limited space for a larger pinion. Or just to sqweeze a little extra speed out of the motor.
Remember, when you advance the timing, the motor will generate more heat from the increased RPMs. So, gear accordingly.

But, for someone who's in Trans-Am, none of this should matter.

It could be that you forgot to program The ESC, or when you put in a new receiver, to re-program the ESC. That is, if you'er running a Novak GTB.

Cool thank you. I moved my post from the Speedpassion thread not to get off there topic. I reset my reciever and set the ESC to the instructions spec. a few guys said its not hurting anything probly just a small glitch since im using the older spektrum reciever. so far I just been leaving my timeing maxed out and changeing the Pinion for the track layout I still need the Pro Programer so I can put the new update in.
