Motor Timing??

Post by 132NHAF » Mon Mar 14, 2011 1:10 pm

I just picked up an Associated RC10T3. I noticed the motor end bell has notches and numbers for timing but I have no idea how timing affects the motor/performance. Can someone dumb it down for me?

Thanks,

Scott

It's not WHAT toys you play with, but that you play with toys at all that is important.

More timing - More rpms, less torque.

Just like in a real car if you advance the timeing the car is snapie if you retard the timeing it is a dog!
