Default Question about torque

Was curious, why would my crawler suddenly have more torque in reverse than forward? I have the novak rooster esc 55t crawler combo. Does anyone know if the timing can be adjusted on the 55t and how to do it? I'm just curious since I drive it in forward mostly and not reverse if the timing could have been thrown off. I read about running it in reverse through a couple battery charges would offset the bad timing. Any info appreciated.

If your motor runs better in reverse you could switch the motor leads and then reverse the throttle setting on your transmitter.

Just not sure why it started doing it. I've been running it alot in the last 3 months and no problems until the BEC burned up. Now I have a new BECbut the loss of torque in forward still exists after the first 3 min of steep grade crawling. But then when I go reverse up the same obstacle after the loss of torque in forward occurs, it has torque still. Everything in the motor checked out fine. Just hope its not the ESC messing up. But I guess if reversing the leads will work I will try it. Just another soldering job if it doesn't help though.
