Brushless Motor Timing, Whats It Do?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was reading abit about timing on the brushless motors and was thinking of playing around with mine should I or just leave it alone? I was hoping to be able to pull a wheelie if I adjust it lower, I did do a wheelie one time in the grass with the default but I tried many more times and couldn't.

Should I change it abit or put it on the lowerest setting? Will it hurt the motor or esc if I change it?

re brushless motor timing

with most brushless motors you can adjust your timing via your esc . with a mamba esc you can adjust the timing in your motor through the usb cable and the castle link on your computer.

increasing your motor timing will give you more power but will also make the motor generate more heat.

your best bet is to leave the motor timing alone and use your gear ratios to increase your speed.

Depends on the set up as well. What esc, motor are you running and in what car? You can usually change physical timing on the end bell or most esc's will as well with different profiles or with pc adapters. If you play with it you might also have to adjust your gearing. Keep an eye on the motor temps when playing with it as well.

With our Tekin gear for the spec motors (10.5, 13.5 17.5) we use full timing on the motor and about 10 - 20 timing boost in the software. This creates a lot more power and you can gear back down using more conventional gearing so the car feels much more snappy. When we have brought out our Tekin gear to demo the drivers were amazed by the power change. In mod racing, 8.5 and lower we use 12.5 timing on the motor and 5 degrees of boost and end up turning down the current limiter.
