Yep, 85-87 seems to be the sweet spot for most motors.

What do you guy's do with the motor timing on a 13,5T Blinky set-up. Give the motor a lot timing? Maximum?

Each motor is different RK
With the exception of LRP though, I think all motors require some added timing

Fast open layouts work well with a lot of timing
On tighter smaller tracks I have found less timing is key to have more rip out of corners, with less fade

Thanks dude! Just trying some things with my Orion motor and 13,5T blinky on a small track.
