    Motor timing for castle 1415

    does anyone have any info on castle motor timings? Do they even benefit from added timing? My hobbywing wp-sc8 offers AMTS timing settings all the way up to 26.25 I have always left it set at 0, as I assumed that the castle motos do not benefit from this added timing?...Ive been running my p4de with this motor for a while now and LOVE IT!!

    Any info into the timing would be most helpful


    thanks

    To my knowledge, the performance goes up but so do temps so it's not really recommended for sustained use unless you absolutely need it.

    I run the same Motor and ESC as you probably know and after reading some infos I now also set the timing to 0. Cooler Temps, longer runtime, longer life-span

    Since to motor is so strong there is really no need for performance increase.

    You will not be able to tell much difference apart from extra heat so keep it as low as possible as the guys have said.And when I messed a round with the timing on my hobbywing pro sct which is the sensored version of the sc8 all it did is make my tenshock run hot and no performance gains.............peace

    my mmps were set at 10 from the factory, and I have never changed it. I am running a plastic gearbox in my xl5 budget build and want to gear up for some crazy bashing speeds. I may take it down to 0 to see how much difference it makes.

    I drive with 0 with my CC1415. Works perfekt

    Got 150F after the 3s pack at my BMX track today.

    And really pushed the motor hard
