Need questions answered for Mod motor timing

I'm just starting to dig into Mod racing and I'm looking for some help on mod motor timing:

I have a 10x1 orion "V" motor, what would be a good starting point for this motor (I think it's set a 15deg right now)?

If I go higher what will it do to efficiency? torque? rpm? and if I go lower what will that do?

On a tight track would I go lower or higher? On a large flowing track would I go higher or lower?

Thanks in adavance.

more timing = more RPM, less torque
less timming = more torque, less rpm

Eff. depends on the motor. there is an article on the Decco site for that.
