I guess bc the lower gearing gave it so punch but the high timing took a little bit of the punch away and gave it a little top end back. Now my ESC runs cooler bc of the low gearing while keeping the motor cool. After a solid 30mins of full throttle in the grass my temps were 126 ESC, 115 motor, and 86 battery. Ambient temp was 72.
A high timing basically weakens the magnetic field, allowing for a higher RPM given the same voltage. But the weakening of magnetic field comes at a cost. High timing puts lots of stress/heat to the ESC and motor. If your gearing and drive style remain the same, switching to high timing will definitely produce more heat.

I've experienced absolutely no negatives by adding the Axial sway bar.

That is what I have found - it works well once you get used to it.
