how does different lateral pitches affect rotation and tilt?

Once the "standard" fit is determined, adjustments can be made as follows (for right handed bowlers, lefties need to reverse the lateral adjustments) :

* To Increase Rev Rate - add 1/8 forward to both fingers and 1/8 reverse to thumb

* To Decrease Rev Rate - add 1/8 reverse to both fingers and 1/8 forward to thumb

* To Increase Axis Rotation and Tilt - add 1/8 left lateral to all three holes

* To Decrease Axis Rotation and Tilt - add 1/8 right lateral to all three holes

does the adjustment for decreasing axis rotation and tilt cause the a person's fingers to exit the ball quicker so that it leaves less time to apply rotation and tilt while the the other adjustment cause the fingers to stay in the ball longer thus having a opposite effect? i know that the bowler's style is the main factor but i'm like to see if i can use this to make small tweaks.
