Hey,

I'm trying to salvage a Concept EP. I know that the motor is under powered but I noticed that I can change the timing on it. I'm not familiar with timing and I was hoping that someone could tell me how to get the most power from this motor. Also, what motor would be a good upgrade for this thing without going completely brushless? Thanks!

Timing the motor one way or the other will either advance or retard armature to brush timing. When i raced cars, i would set the timing to 0 or at least amp draw with most amount of rpm for duration. Turnning the endbell on the motor will either give you higher rpm, or more bottem torque depending on the direction you turn it. Just keep in mind the amperage draw does change and will be hard on the brushes- they tend to arc more

take the motor out.. supply power to it.. turn the endbell to the positive side (the can should be marked)... this would advance the timing.. if there are no marks, advancing is when the rpm's increase.. rpm decrease is retarding. Youll have to decide what works best for you for torque, rpm, brush life and run time. Usually run time is at best set at 0 degrees... which should give you least amp draw
