I thought about that too. I had a friend bring me
his truggy with a new Toro engine awhile back.
I got it fired up for him on my starterbox, but
when he took it home, he could'nt get it running
again. I went over to his house and tried to get
it to fire and it wouldn't. Humm, tried everything,
then I happened to notice that his new starterbox
was spinning the engine over backwards. He had
soldered the Deans connector to the battery wires
wrong. I couldn't laugh a him because I had done
the same thing before myself.

If you are looking at it from the front bearing - yes - at least in "Most" cases.

i thought so. I have wondered on several occasions, that when i break my motor down, the crank, piston pin, rod etc are equal in both directions. It could go either way. So i always wondered how the engine knows to always go counter clockwise?

It's the way you start it huh? Never would of thought of that. Makes perfect sense though. pretty interesting. now if we could only get a engine with reverse!

The real fun is not to run the engine in reverse - flip your diffs around - so they run in reverse. I won't openly admit this - but I have had the front wheel spinning in reverse and the rear wheels spinning forward on my starter box scratching my head and saying - I know I built this diff right - that's going on .. LOL LOL

I've even joked about having a backwards race -
