Default Motor timing and ESC boost timing are the same effect??

Do the have the same out put performance if I adj the motor with +15deg or esc boost with 15deg?

I might be wrong, but I am sure someone will correct. I believe they have the same effect on speed. I think the difference is timing on the motor adds heat to the motor only, and ESC timing adds heat to both. I could be way off though.

No...
Adva the timming on the motor= the motor will start at 15deg plus as soon you hit the throttler... 15deg in the esc, it like the turbo in your car ,it kick in later after you get going ( it is depend on the rpm of the motor where you want the 15deg boost to start()

The idea of boost is to allow the greater speed associated with motor timing but with improved efficiency. You're not applying full timing at low RPM situations, thereby reducing the heating of the motor.

Of course, this is when you have all the settings right

Esc timing is more efficient then motor timing.

Default team trinity / advance timing

Why have the ability to advance motor timing if you have fear over some heating issues..I have a d3 17.5 and on the asphalt its. Slow if you are unable to set the esc would it make sense to advance timing a few degress without causing any over heating issues..the motor was designed to stay cool ...

Motor timing is fixed (and always applied), esc boost is able to be tuned to suit a track or driver style. Also a number of classes don't allow esc boost so you only have gearing and motor timing to play with to find the sweet spot for both acceleration and top speed

Better explanation.

Timing the motor has another name too: static timing. Increasing static timing reduces bottom end acceleration but increases top end speed. The motor will run less efficiently and produce more heat.

Boost timing is different. It is applied only when the motor is going faster, and it can be ramped up slowly. The result is basically as if you had no static timing down low in the rev range (fast acceleration), and a lot of static timing high in the rev range (increased top speed). The best of both worlds basically.
