Do the traxxas titan motors have timing advance (yes they do!)

It has been speculated for years whether or not the traxxas titan 21T (monster) motor was neutral timed or not. I personally have always felt "not", as otherwise, why make a reverse-rotation version. Then I saw this, on a set I just bought. Motor on the left is a 12T (known to have forward timing advance). Motor in the center is a normal (forward) rotation 21T. Motor on the right is a reverse-rotation 21T. Notice the square indent in the can... and what side it's on. Just my opinion, but I'd say that has something to do with timing and/or rotation, as is mirrored/reversed on the reverse rotation motor.
