Default wow what a small timing change

i just felt like opening the hood and messing with something, i adjusted the timing to 11-12deg, i have no idea what it was at before, but it was running kind of dogish.... now...holy crap, i almost spun out the first time i drove it after i closed the hood...

musta been way off or something to notice that big of a difference, unless you've just never adjusted it. Dont go much above 13 though, bad for everything.
