Solara, how can the timing be adjusted on the motor?

Loosen the (3) screws on the end bell and rotate counterclockwise. I would first put a reference mark on the motor can and end bell so you know how much you have turned it. There are no "mechanical" stops, so be careful.

Doesn't this motor have the black locking tab behind the wire connection point that stops this rotation?

No, Like he said loosen the screws and rotate it counter clockwise. It may be hard to turn at first but there is nothing holding it in place. Be careful like he said it can rotate all the way around.

(1) the motor is not locked timing. Never intend to do it that way. We want the motor be servicable so it will last along time.

(2) Rotating the end cap to advance the timing is almost impossible to do. I recommand you to disassemble the end plate, rotate the end plate ring within (that silver ring inside, kinda like the good old brushed motor ring) couterclock wise by 2mm or so, then aim the end cap and screw in the 3 screws back

(3) Yes...warranty will be void immediately if motor was burnt because of the over timing...there are not timing lock on it so you can over timing the motor and ruin it. BE CAREFUL

(4) This motor is not intend to be ZERO TIMING....ZERO TIMING is for the ESC only, not the motor. However, if your club is promoting full ZERO TIMING (both ESC and MOTOR)...the V2 motor is very easy to spot if the user is advanced the timing or not. The marking "B" is at 12:00 position, perpendicularly poiniting toward the 3 wire tabs, that is = zero timing, no advance...if the "B" position is not at that position, the timing has been altered.

Default Citrix Spec ESC

Where can you buy these? I'm having a hard time finding someone who carries them.

I bought mine directly from SP's online store for $68 shipped to my door. I had it in my hands in less than 2 weeks from HK and so far, I'm really happy with what I have seen. It's VERY small without the fan, compared to most other spec-type and VTA-legal ESCs.

So far, so good.

Size. Rob and the USVTA made extra sure that they all are equal. Get it.

I also ran the Cirtix Comba at the TCS Regional and my car was flying at 33mph down the straight. Then I figured out my brake wasn't working, I thought it's the ESC but on closer examination, my new used radio did not have the brake caliberated properly (should have recaliberated a used system when I got it). A costly mistake but still made it to B-Main 3rd considering I am running a GT1 car without any brake.

Motor and ESC both runs extremely cool given the sunny weather around 75F.
