Post beginners question re: car tuning and motor tuning!


I am currently runing a team orion rush 23 turn motor, with a novak super rooster, on a tamiya TT-01 chasis. I race with a coupple of friends of mine who all have stock Tamiya's with tamiya sport tuned stock motors and manual speed controllers.
My car doesn't seem to perform any better then the stock cars and so I was wondering if there are any tricks to set up the car better (already running bb, aluminium propeller shaft).
Do I need to change the timing on the motor? If so, how much do I turn the end bell???
How do I true the comm, will this help?

Thanks heaps for your help!

The Rush motors aren't particularly good quality, so that may be part of the reason.

You can get a faster wind motor (15/17 turns shouldn't be too much for a TT01) of a better quality (for example, from Orions range, get a Pro BB or the new V2 version) and that should make a difference.

As the others said, cleaning the motor, and getting it rebuilt with a comm cut and new brushes should help too.
