Default Trinity D3.5 13.5T Timing

need help to adjust the timing, cant post it in the trinity thread.
from the endbell, it has the marking up to 40 but i can only turn it to the left at 20, couldn't go all the way to 40. it that correct?
i realized that when i hooked up with a team powers 1s xps esc at 0 timing, it was so slow

Hello Choisan,
On the back of the enbell there should be 3 screws un-tighten them all some times it binds up and it makes it hard to turn try that hope this helps

Hi Mike,
I was able to turn the backplate, however it couldn't reach 40, only reached 20 as marked there. Is 20 the max it could adjust instead of 40 please?

It should go to 40. Maybe loosen the screws a little more. Sometimes, the back plate will not turn all the way unless the screws are loosened more.

There might be something warped or debris is in the motor. Have you taken it apart and checked it out?

If you have two motors doing the same thing, it sounds like a manufacturing flaw. Have you tried contacting tech support? Problem is, I hear the new company is not so good at answering tech support questions.

I personally don't follow the timing marks on the can. Always use a motor analyzer if possible as it will give you what the true timing is.

The Trinity's are usually within a few degrees from the markings.

you Don't need an analyser.
I use this method and with help of friend:
  1. install a battery.
  2. loosen the timing screw so you can rotate the endbell
  3. Turn the timing to down
  4. Now have friend hold the throttle wide open and you slowly start turning up the timing. (don't worry about sparks that may come off)
  5. keeping turning it up until you heard the get faster all of sudden
  6. lock the timing in place
  7. you should now be in the sweet spot and should only need to adjust a +/- a deg from there.
This method works if you don't have a motor analyzer. Just keep in mind, you still need to have the correct gearing for your track. Guaranteed you will have the best all around power.

If you're boosting, please use an analyzer to make sure your timin isn't past 60deg when adding boost.
