I want to change the tracker timeout in µTorrent from 30 minutes to something else (Preferably more than 30 minutes)...

But I can't seem to find an option or switch for it...

is there any way to change the timeout ?

You can't.

That parameter is controlled by the Tracker.

And it's not a 'Timeout', it's a 'Interval' how often the client announces to the tracker.
To often causes unnecessary loads.
To seldom and the peer gets removed form the trackers peer list.
